September 30 in 30, Day 2

A man selling sunflowers moved into the booth next
 to mine at the Rockton River Market. 

I took several photos. The colors and textures were fascinating! I am a bit fixated on them so you can expect to see several sunflowers make their way into my 30 in 30.

30 in 30 hosted by Leslie Saeta.

There's something so cheerful and optimistic about sunflowers.

Alcohol Inks on Yupo Papper
8" x 11"

Mark and I spent a long weekend Up North with friends. 

Laurie, who I've known since 7th grade, and I took some time to do some alcohol inks. Before putting the finishing touches on our paintings we went  swimming. It always helps to back away from a painting a bit before you're done. Laurie didn't want me to take this picture because her hair is wet but I'm loving her work and couldn't help myself. We had such a great time.

Ken, Laurie's husband, didn't want to paint but was interested in the process. I hope to host painting parties Up North next year. It's a wonderful place to paint and play.


  1. Such a fun idea, and this sunflower is stunning Jill!

    1. Thanks 30 days. Visited your page and was thrilled by the flowers of day 1 and the girls of day 2. Can't wait to see what today brings.
