sunflower inspiration

I just wanted to share - a photo of our neighbour's sunflower. It has some friends that have yet to bloom - I'm hoping the sun lasts long enough in this short prairie summer. (I say summer, but with the chilly mornings, I'm sure that the weather could be called autumnal).

And this is one of the preliminary sketches I've done - thinking that my penchant for swirly curls and freeflowing lines might work well with this subject. It was also absolutely gorgeous, sitting outside in the sun sketching from life.

And this is from my kids - I think it might be my favourite of the lot. There is nothing better than seeing their creations.
