A new painting

I liked the view by our motel in Moab, UT with a lone sunflower in the field and I thought it might make a nice watercolor. This is it. I can't believe August is almost gone, guess it didn't help being gone ourselves for almost two weeks.
We haven't seen many Monarchs or their caterpillars this year, we may have too many predators in the garden, don't know. We've enjoyed watching the Yellow Finches picking away at our Cone Flowers, I tried to get a photo thru the window.
We haven't any plans for Labor Day, that I know of anyway. It looks to be a nice weekend. It is hot and muggy today. A storm is to come thru and cool us off again.
There shall be eternal Summer in the grateful heart. Celia Thaxter

So very pretty.
I have always wished I could draw or paint...as it is I can take photos..lol.
You do have lots of backyard visitors. The Gold Finches love the coneflowers and the sunflowers in my backyard. Out in the wild I think they look so charming on the thistles.
We are off to St. Louis for the weekend.
