30 paintings in 30 days - Day 23

One of my favorite things about late summer in Oklahoma is the sunflowers or black eyed Susans that grow along the sides of the roads. I am not sure what kind of flower they are. Sunflowers are grown as crops here, but these are different.

Unlike my typical approach in which I paint pretty strictly from one photo, I referenced a couple for this one and developed the composition myself. 

Happy freaking weekend, everyone!
