Bye Bye Black Eye

The Black Eyed Susans are blooming profusely now - such glorious sweeps of sunflower yellow - and of course that protruding 'black eye' . I have a huge bouquet of these beauties in my kitchen - but this wilting/bowing blossom caught my eye for a sketch. Fleetingly beautiful, which is what makes fresh flowers and sunsets and many other things so precious.

Love the Black eyed Susans! This is interesting in it's less than perfect state. Your colors are right on!
