BOWED HEADS By Cecelia Lyden


oil/stretched canvas
11x14

It was a glorious day for painting sunflowers outdoors at a local farm. Several of us showed up at Ashcomb Farms. I was happy to be outside in the sun and sweet-smelling fresh air but, the sunflowers looked a little sad, with drooping heads and withering petals, as if they knew the end of summer was near. However, there still was enough color to paint and the heart-shaped leaves made a lively design.

Nice Cecelia!! I am sorry I missed this painting day. It sounds like it was a good one.

Cecelia, this is so much nicer in person and I'm glad I saw the start of it. There's happy sunflowers on your painting even though the real ones at Ashcombs won't be lasting too long.

This is such a lovely painting from that day at Ashcombe's, Cecelia!

Summers last harah! Love the sunflowers. Wish I could have been there that day. Great job! Hope to see you at the picnic.
