A Sunflower for Bruce

Years ago, I'm guessing it was 1995 or 1996, my brother scattered sunflower seeds in the backyard for the birds. They were the little black seeds and they grew dainty little sunflowers.

. My brother passed away in 2001, but every spring come rain or shine, heat or cold, those sunflowers would pop up in the yard. That is until this year. I miss those little flowers that my brother would share with me even though he wasn't here. Today is my brother's birthday and he would be 46. So this year I decided to give my brother a sunflower.

I started with my old white plastic patio table.
And then using spray paint

I liked this background color and it matches my house! :-)

Then I spray painted a black circle in the middle and then using yellow, I spray painted the petals

Then using a paintbrush and black craft paint

Well, you get the picture.
Here's the final result.

I finished it off with a coat of clear gloss

Happy Birthday, Bruce. I hope you like it. 
I miss you. Give mom a hug for me.
Love your sister, Karen
