Carry On

Still haven't come up with the text I want to use in the work boots painting. I think it might be 'working hard to make a living' or maybe 'focus on the journey not the destination'. Anyway I've put that painting to one side and decided to carry on with the next.

I had an idea to use different handwriting and some book pages onto which I would paint a sunflower or part of a sunflower. Some of the handwriting is my grandparents, some is mine and some I got from the net. But as it sometimes happens the background is doing its own thing and getting a different feel to it. Not sure if its suited to a sunflower. I will just keep going with it and see where it takes me. I do enjoy not knowing the destination.
work in progress 60.9x60.9cm (24"x24")

A sunflower painting will be wonderful.
I did two sunflower water colour paintings
and sold both. I don´t know about the copyright.
I wouldlike to show you, but I think the copyriht you sell together with your art work.

I think the copyright is yours even if you sell it.

A sunflower will grow just fine there on the page! Maybe a little inchworm needs to read the magic to you!
