Flowers of the Sun

"Flowers of the Sun"

Pastel on UArt Paper
It's been cloudy most days. Still working through the blahs...so why not a little artificial sun? In trying to get out of a painting rut, I've heard that trying new things, or getting back to basics is a good thing.

I was inspired by some posts by Jen Evenhus on the Pastel Society of America Facebook site. She's been doing some 20 minute paintings. It seemed like a good idea to loosen up and let go. So, I chose something simple - the sunflowers from the grocery store. This is my attempt at a 20 minute painting. I do admit I did a couple of tweaks afterwards, maybe 3-5 minutes worth. It was a fun exercise!
