The Sun Came Out

When the sun shines and the flowers begin to bloom, inspiration to paint florals sometimes appears. The sun was out briefly yesterday afternoon and inspiration arrived, too. Though they aren't blooming in the garden, it seems sunflowers are available at most of the local florists. I can see why Van Gogh enjoyed the subject. This painting was painting in oil and is 5x7 inches on a canvas panel.

Beautifully done. There's just something so inherently cheerful about sunflowers, isn't there?
