Sunshine in Winter

I am spending the winter in Beaufort, S.C.  While working in my journal from a photo taken last summer in Michigan,  I painted these happy sunflowers.

I transfered the design to some handmade, 300 lb. watercolor paper that I had been wanting to test.  It certainly worked different than anything I have ever used.  Soaked up the water and paint like a sponge.  I love to use lots of water so it worked OK for me.

I think they are rays of sunshine during a dark and rainy winter here.  Hope you're enjoying making your own sunshine where ever you.
