The sunflower compulsion

No matter what your artistic practice is -- it's hard to say no
to sunflowers.  The contrast between the cold of winter, and 
these vibrant summer time beauties is compelling.  I sat down
tonight and started a drawing.  Unlike what I'm showing you,
I decided it must have colour.  So I have begun -- but that takes 
time, and the first colour has to dry.  So it's blog time, and 
here's a sweet drawing of sunflowers from a few years ago.

I greatly admire van Gogh, and It amazes me that he painted
so many paintings of these complicated beauties.

Have a loving your life day.
