Red Sunflower Triptych Photo - Tackle It

I have been so behind in things this summer. I still feel like I just moved and not really settled. Artwork still needs to be hung on the walls, boxes are still packed, thank you letters from my daughter's third birthday are still not written, and that is just the beginning.

I'll admit I have put a priority on meeting new people, getting in shape, and adding things to my ljdesignphoto etsy shop. I figure I will have a little more time once my daughter starts preschool and with that right around the corner I'm just not going to worry too much about everything else. If your visiting my blog hoping to read more of my adventures on Route 66, please know that it will become more of a priority in fall when I have time to really sit at the computer and write.

One thing I did accomplish (or tackle) this summer was to grow a red sunflower. I had never seen or heard of a red sunflower and wanted to see one myself. Now it has finally bloomed and I think it is beautiful. Here is a triptych that I made of it yesterday. I'm going to put it above the bench in my entry way. If you like it you can have it to because I named it Red Suflower Triptych Photo and added it to my etsy shop yesterday.

I made this an edition of only 25, so that means only 24 are available after I get mine framed and hung.

Your sunflower is beautiful! I had never seen a red one before either. I think that it is wonderful that you grew it too! I really like the flower series in your shop!

Beautiful! I've grown sunflowers, but never red ones! Maybe I'll have to try that next year. :)

Great photos - so pretty

Audra Krell said...

It is absolutely stunning. I love that you hadn't ever seen one so you took the bull by the horns and grew yourself one. I love that kind of ambition!

Thank you so much for all the wonderful comment.
Audra - thanks. I need to learn to take the bull by the horns more often. It was defiantly worth it this time.
