I was recently asked to paint a mural of sunflowers. Not only has it been many years since I've painted, but I've also never painted flowers, nor painted on a wall. I had to practice a little bit before I took on this task. I stayed up too late the night before attempting sunflowers and leaves. I had bought a couple of Donna Dewberry books awhile ago to see if that could speed up the process of painting for me, but I have to say I like painting in my own way much better. Her process just makes it harder for me, but maybe for someone who doesn't know how to paint, it would make it easier.
So here is my first attempt at painting a picture after 15 years.

In the morning when my children saw the pictures, they clamored over who could have one.
I have started the mural but am taking a break now to get back to my homemaking, child training, and teaching (we are doing school through the summer). Those things can't be neglected.
