Art: Sunflower by Artist Joanna Daneman
The sunflower is one of my favorites to grow, to paint and I've been a fan of the seeds since a tiny child. The sunflower, however, is a medicinal plant, not just a tonic for the soul. The leaves are astringent, and the flowers make a tea good for the lungs and both leaves and flowers are good against fevers. This is a watercolor with minimal sketching, using salt to create the texture of the anthers and seeds.
