"A MOMENT IN THE SUN" ORIGINAL MIXED MEDIA SUNFLOWER PAINTING © SAUNDRA LANE GALLOWAY

"A Moment in the Sun"
6" x 6"
mixed media on gallery wrap canvas with texture

FINALLY I had an afternoon to paint! WHEW...I was beginning to think it wasn't going to happen!  This is a commission for a friend...and I'm happy to say it's finished (well, until I look at it tomorrow to make sure!)  

This piece had a color scheme in mind...thus the large center which will satisfy that I believe...So nice to do a sunflower at the end of the summer!

I've been back photographing my acorn...it's brown now...the ONLY one the squirrels didn't get at...and that is saying a LOT as we have tons of scrub oak around my house...that's one FAT squirrel!  But, had to share!
And, it is official...we finally put a bid on a house...so, the waiting game begins as we wait for the counter offer...it is definitely a diamond in the rough, but we look at it is a creative challenge...SO, along with my studio time will be time spent looking at flooring, appliances, drapery etc...FUN DOINS at the Galloway house!!

I think I've taken so many photos of the acorn I may have to paint it...but, the joyful thing is I can wake up and decide to paint anything I want! WOO HOO!!

HAPPY CREATING!

Lovely sunflower, Saundra!! I have my acorn piece drawn (from the last acorn photo) but still need to lay down paint. That I hope to do today. Of course, I have granddaughter #3 and grandbaby #4 that is now 3 days late so who knows what will happen??? Of course, I also have to run out to my youngest daughter's new house (they are renting) as my current youngest granddaughter (she'll be 5 on the 22nd) said "I miss you, Mimi...When are you gonna come to our house?" I have to go. I miss all of them every day so I can't wait to see them today.

The sunflower is awesome as they always are when you paint them!

I'm so glad the house issue has a good possibility of being solved. That's a relief! You're having quite the year, aren't you? There's always big "doin's" at the Galloway house, it seems!

I do love your sunflowers. I love about them that their faces follow the sun. A good example for me, too.
