"Sunflower" Day 2

This weekend I traveled up to Cortez, Colorado to the 12 Hours of Mesa Verde mountain bike race. I supported my husband while he raced solo on his single speed mountain bike. He completed 7 laps (15 miles each) for a grand total of 105 miles, landing him 5th place out of 20 in his class! Needless to say I didn't paint while I was gone, but here's what I did on Wednesday and Thursday. Due to the large size of this piece, (48" X 36") and the time involved, I decided I am going to document the process. Day one was just measuring and sketching, and day two was meant to be only for background, but I found my groove and only stopped when it became too dark to see.

Great seeing you at Cortez!!

Day 2 on the sunflower is very cool. I like it as is! Very abstract right now.
