Sunflower #3, Oil on canvas, 12″ x 24″

There’s been a mad wind blowing these last few days. A northerner people say. My one and only sunflower has been blown this way and that, surprisingly strong on her elegant tall stalk. She is well over 7′ high, and I’ve watched the growth from seedling up. Now that she is in full bloom I’ve been painting her from morning to afternoon, and have one or two pieces that have worked, but what a challenge! The wind had all her petals being constantly tousled, and her leaves would never be still. So I’ve done my best, and like this one, the angle being not the usual radiant flowerhead one is understandably drawn too, and how I first approached this subject. Love the curling spiky green thingies….
