Sunflowers at Sunset

The sunflowers have started showing their color, and after such a busy day, I come late to my easel.  Rushing to capture the fleeting light before it is gone, I swiftly mark the masses. The essence of the landscape is my goal, and the glorious blooms, my muse.  I'm laying the heads down loosely, hinting at the impression of their movement in the breeze.  Leaving this one a little more impressionistic appeals to me, suits my mood.  After all, less is more.  Painting number 1696 in 1696 days.
