I may be a bit obsessed with sunflowers.
This one is a much more typical Oregon field, with big green trees in the background…
Oddly, however, I think I went back to my So Cal days and thought of the
tall skinny trees that served as windbreaks in the fields around Ventura.
I made these colors more intense, and made a huge mistake,
which hopefully I was able to recover from.
Because of that, I splashed around a bit more and
played a bit more, trying to save the sketch.

I think that is the better one… What say you?

Me… why I journal!
