This was painted as a still life setting in the studio. The flower was my grandsons graduation class flower as it brightly displayed the Van Vleck Leopard's school colors. Each graduate presented their mother with a Mexican Sunflower in appreciation of their support. I figured if it represented that much of an honor, I would paint it so it would last in memory. Besides, it is a pretty flower. I enjoyed working on this painting.
