Vintage Sunflower

Sunflowers have a special place in my heart.  They always take me back to my grandfather’s Illinois garden.  As children, my brother and I loved to wander the tidy paths in this magical place with the giant, majestic sunflowers that floated over our heads.  They were truly the stars of the garden. Do you have a sentimental flower?

Tulip Farm in The Land of Whimsy

I’ve been playing in the paints again, so I just wanted to share this one with you.  This watercolor was inspired by an enchanting barn I spotted while visiting Upstate New York a few years ago.  It was old and full of character with many tales to tell.  This barn that called my name was perched high up on a hill next to a gnarly looking vineyard in the dead of winter.  Well, I didn’t paint the dead of winter, nor did I paint the gnarled vineyard because things are always bright and full of life in The Land of Whimsy.
