‘Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the shadows. It’s what the sunflowers do.’ Helen Keller.

07 Mar

Stories from my Sketchbook . . . 

Our summer this year has been a real scorcher, even here around the mid-north coast where we are used to a much more temperate climate.  But thankfully (at least I am thankful for it) the summer heat is finally starting to wane.  The days are still sunny and warm but they are getting a tiny bit shorter and there is something in the air that smells just a little bit like autumn—and autumn is my favourite time of year . . .

But before the summer finally leaves us I thought I would do one final quick ‘summer’ sketch . . . and there is nothing more summery than a sunflower.  I like sunflowers. They are big, bold, happy ‘in-your-face’ flowers.

And, it turns out, they’re even kind of fun to draw . . .

      Summer is lovely – most of the time! It’s just that this year has been so exceptionally hot and it’s been a bit exhausting! But I really should not complain about the heat – especially considering half the world would be glad of it during their freezing winters – and I daresay once our own winter kicks in here I will then be wishing the summer (and the sunflowers) were back again . . . 🙂
