"Sunflowers"

This is the third in the series of sunflowers I've been working on. I love the symmetry of the seeds in the center, and the pattern they form, even though they are challenging to render realistically. There is just something cheerful about sunflowers that makes them a favorite with so many people, myself included. And with everything negative going on in the world, it's good for my soul to work on pieces that make me smile when I look at them.
