Hello,

Been too busy with boring work stuff last few weeks to do much-- but managed to paint this this weeend. It's in the running for our solstice card this year (because nothing says winter holidays like a sunflower ;-) !

The scan as usual has stripped out some of the contrast and lightened a few darks (and when I try to PS it I just make it worse) but it's reasonably close.

It's watercolor and colored pencil about 9x12" on Arches cold pressed with WN paints. Not a clear focal point so I'm hoping the texture/color makes it interesting enough.

Thanks for looking.

That strong yellow against the equally strong blue is very striking - wow! :D

Thanks all-- I really appreciate the comments! Relief to know I have a potential card if I don't produce anything I like better before Dec.
