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.

Years ago, shortly after my husband and I purchased our first home, we crept out in the dark of night to surreptitiously retrieve a shabby old dresser from a neighboring curbside, with the intention of satisfying our newly acquired need for additional furniture. I had promised my skeptical husband I could make something useful and worthwhile from this rather dubious find....

The result was a fun, nifty dresser for my young son's new bedroom, painted on all sides with lively colorful scenes. The overall theme was Soccer, as per my son's special request . Hence here we have an entire dresser side panel depicting children playing a friendly scrimmage, under the watchful eye of the sun...

(To note: Naturally this was all REALLY cool when my son was 7 years old. And now that he's 15? Well, not so much...)
