sunflower 6"x7"

The ag teacher at school, Jill Mendelsohn, has a small garden and greenhouse behind her room. Her students had planted some sunflowers and she was nice enough to provide one for this painting. Sunflowers are a pretty common item for still life painting. I've seen many pictures of them and have experienced them first hand many times. Until I painted this one I don't think I really understood just how big and yellow they really are.
