Early Morning Flower Sketches

I'm finally feeling less like a zombie today. I can't stay up all night like I used to in college (studying, of course *wink*). Ha! I've also found that I really need some alone time every day so I've started getting up before the kids and doing a little painting or drawing before my crazy day starts. I'm very fortunate that my kiddos have been sleeping in this summer (like until 8:30 or 9:00 am, even the baby!) so I don't have to get up that early. This morning I painted some sunflowers and hollyhocks. Both are in bloom in my garden. They are just lovely and calling out to be painted. :)
