Sunflower Ladybug Vignette

- by Pamela K Wilhelm

This week's theme: Helianthus

They are named for the sun. Their symmetry is based on Fibonacci numbers. They are native to the Americas, but have traveled widely and have captured the eyes and imagination of people all over the world.



In trying to work out the best methods of painting worn-out action figures, I've started a sub-series of my regular toy paintings. This is my husband's R2-D2 figure from childhood. The sticker is worn off from being wet too many times; R2's normal white appearance is yellowed from being in a smoking home for his earliest years. Paint is scratched off everywhere. It is difficult to convey that kind of detail on such a small object, but I enjoyed this attempt and look forward to others!
