More Flowers & WIP?

This painting started out to be all daffodils, but something happened to the larger one and it started to look more like a sunflower...so I went with that instead.

I don't think this one is finished, as I'm not real happy with the background. I tried the alcohol technique and even though it was fun to watch the paint move around, I'm just not sure if it looks like rain. The story on this painting is taken from the verse in Psalms 91:4, "He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge..." The girl is so troubled over the storm around her, she forgets to look up and see that God is in control and protecting her.

We got to babysit our grandson Grant yesterday and played with him in the sprinkler. It was so much fun! Today we are off to our daughters house to see our youngest grandson's dedication service at the church.
I hope everyone is having a good weekend so far!

Lovely! I love how art takes its own direction even when you have plans for her :-) Reminiscent of van Gogh - my daughter plans to do a sun flower van Gogh rendition this summer so she is interested in this!
