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.



I based this painting on a photo I took on a recent visit to the Houston Zoo. I have always loved flamingos. I'd say they're probably in my top 3 of favorite birds. Although this is not usually the type of subject I paint, I couldn't resist giving it a try. I look forward to revisiting this type of painting in the future!
