The blog of Ohio artist, Nora Sallows, a compulsive oil painter!

My husband gave in to my request to plant sunflowers this year. We bought a couple different varieties plus we had some come up last year from the bird seed. A couple of these flowers are almost a foot in diameter. I chopped off a few smaller ones, put them in one of my ceramic pitchers and made a painting. These flowers are messy. They lose dusty orange pollen every day, but they do hold up fairly well over a period of 2-3 days if you don't get a chance to paint them right away.
