October Sunflowers

It's getting harder to find these roadside sunflowers as the season progresses!  On the news of a dear family friend under the weather, I instantly thought of her love of sunflowers, and had to paint them!  The flower of Kansas, these are commonly found all over the rural pastures and roads.  I have saved a bunch of seed which I will be tossing along my own fence lines, to ensure I never run out next year!  Lol!  These tangled beauties make for difficult compositions, so I normally paint them negatively. By filling in the sky holes, the sunflowers emerge.  I find this easier than blocking in every stem and mass, at least at first.  That is the next step, though!  Painting number 2827 in 2827 days.
