Sunflowers... finished?

I still have to scan them in so the colors are correct- the colors shown here are still a little off. I think it might be done, but there's a possibility that I'll be adding a ladybug to one of the leaves on the flower on the left. A little more pop of color and something random to add interest.

However, two friends have suggested something else. One friend of mine (author of this wonderful blog) suggested a honey bee, either on a flower or flying toward them. Another friend (and author of another great blog!) mentioned that she always has grasshoppers on the leaves of her sunflowers and suggested one of those.

Either that or the bee would be interesting because I could do either of them in a way that they would almost blend in and not be noticable right away.... so there are still some other possibilities with this painting!

I LOVE that painting, Samantha! Those sunflowers look radiant, so bold and proud standing there. They really make a statement. I have to get some Sunflower seeds this year and plant them for the bees. My mother would love that painting too since Sunflowers are her favorite.

I think the red ladybug would really pop on that painting - a rondom dot of color. Either way, the painting looks great.

I've been thinking of you a lot lately, been missing you, but knowing how busy you are and giving you space :-0
