I visited the Denver Zoo is hopes of collecting reference photos of animals for paintings. I didn’t end up getting any good photos of animals, but my trip did produce the reference photo for “Summer Jewels”. Tucked away in a more secluded area of the zoo was this lovely sunflower field. There was a path to walk on where you would surrounded by these crowning summer jewels. I wanted to capture that joyful, magic moment of summer.
