"Getting That Vintage Feel ..."


...with a couple of old fashioned sunflowers
banded by
a bit of a gingham inspired border...:)

Illustration Friday: "Old Fashioned"

"As for marigolds, poppies, hollyhock,
and valorous sunflowers...
we shall never have a garden without them...
both for their own sake...
and for the sake of old-fashioned folks,
who used to love them.
~Harriet Beecher Stowe
1813-1887

Always loved painting sunflowers since my regular summer visits to south West France, but these are simply a stunning rendition and composition. Wonderfully bright and cheerful.
