The Sunflower Basket is the first basket in the series of Literature for the Young Lady. (If you haven't read the introductory post, please do so before reading further!) Plan on taking at least 9 weeks with this basket, perhaps.

While getting groceries I spied this fresh #protea duo in the #floral clearance bin. Now it's nowhere near Alaska weather but I'd be lying if I said the temps were balmy here in Washington state. The sight of these protea exiled to the clearance bin was just what I needed.  I swiftly rescued them and brought them to the studio. A quick photo session in the sunlit window later and I have the subject for my next painting.  . . . . . #proteaflower #hawaiiflowers #tropicalart #flowerart…
