Inspiration

 Far Guy was looking for a new flower to carve. 

I suggested Rudbeckia because it is one he has not carved before.  He had a false start that didn't work out...but carried on...I asked him if he was carving a bouquet...he said NO.

This is a Rudbeckia in our wild gardens...it may be the one called "Rustic Colors."  It was his inspiration.

He has asked me to paint it. 

Here it is waiting on the dining room table. 

I will give it a whirl!

  1. So far I really think it is good. Can't wait to see it painted. We have been very hot and humid around here lately. Finally are getting some rain. The lack of rain has made many trees start to loose their leaves.
