Sunflower Painting
I worked and struggled on this experimental painting off and on earlier this year, and finally finished it after lots of process and trial and error.  It's a combo of personal photos that have been Photoshopped, various collage, and acrylics on gallery canvas.  I was pleased to receive a 3rd place for painting of the month at Seattle Co-Arts last meeting!
