BEATING THE ODDS


Painting completed in: 2017

We have lots of bird feeders on our porch and the birds are usually very good at eating every seed that gets put out for them. However, one Sunflower Seed managed to make it to the ground, avoid the Raccoons that eat any seeds that the birds miss, grow and produce this beautiful Sunflower! I couldn’t resist painting this delightful surprise because I related to the Sunflower in my own life!
