September Sunflower on Thursday. Can you believe it’s been a week?

This is the last of the Sunflower Series for now. I’m on to other things. I’m thinking toothbrushes. Yep. Really. Took photos today. Just you wait…

Whoop, Whoop! It’s Thursday again! Continuing on with the Sunflower theme (we are all down with that, right?), here we go! First, though, I have to share a photo of my helper:


Big helper

My cat had to get in on the action. Right when I began to take photos. Thanks. Big help. Real. Big. Help.

Once he had some nibbles, I actually took a photo of the intended object, the painting for this week’s Thursday FB post! Here she goes:

That’s right. “Singing Sunflower” is the perfect name for this flower, because when I snapped the photo for reference, this one was facing the sun and singing her heart out. Well, I heard her anyway.

If you saw this painting in person, you would see how incredibly interesting the textured surface is. Seriously. You should have it in your house. People will be jealous. 😉

Make sure to follow me on Facebook, where this pretty little painting is offered as a bid starting out at $30 today only. Happy Thursday, all!!


Sunflower Season is upon us! Not sure about you, or where you live, but here in Bend, Oregon, sunflowers are showing their sunny faces everywhere you look. Therefore, this week I’m devoting my paintings to their simple beauty.

I started three paintings on my watercolor board all at once. I finished one for Thirty-Dollar Thursday! It turned out wonderful!

I experimented with several background colors and compositions. Here is one:

During the month of September, I’m offering my Thirty-Dollar Thursday every week…with a twist! This time, I’m changing the format to a bidding process. The amount will start at $30, but if you want it, bid on it. A 12-hour window, 7am to 7pm, on Facebook, will be the platform. The person with the highest bid at 7pm Pacific Time gets the painting. Shipping, if necessary, is extra.

If you want to bid on it, please follow me on Facebook, which is where the bid will take place.  Happy Thursday, everyone!!
