Campbell's Sunflower

Campbell Brock wanted me to paint a sunflower and it is very difficult to refuse anyone so special a request.
So she helped pick the design.
Choosing to do a yellow butterfly, a Tiger Swallowtail, on a sunflower is not a good demonstration of contrast, but I thought we could make it work. Of course one could reverse this and paint an orange Monarch and then a more yellow phase sunflower however the orange seed head would still be a problem.
Overall I was pleased with it and Campbell gave it a big smile so we are good.
