Sunflower, Acrylic on Gessoboard, 6"x6", $195
This is one of the sunflowers that grew in my vegetable garden this year.  Every winter, the birds drop seeds all over. In the spring they get tilled into the garden and subsequently come up amid the vegetables.  I like to leave some of them if they are not in the way.  They add wonderful splashes of color among the orderly rows of produce.

I used Julie Oliver's fracturing technique on this painting. I love the textures and broken edges that using a squeegee introduces to the painting's surface.
