This was done for this years Sun Art challenge over on The Artist Challenge website. For those of you not familiar with this challenge - every year in February, the Sun Art challenge occurs. All members of the group are invited to send in their artwork depicting the sun in various designs. The digital images are then sent to the CBS Sunday Morning Show where they are kept in their library. Each Sunday during the show, at the end of each segment, a different sun is chosen to display.

Not all the art in The Artist Challenge group is used, and CBS does not use the suns from The Artist Challenge group exclusively. Here is a link to the 2010 Sun art library, as well as the 2011 library. The art does not have to be paintings exclusively, as you will see a stained glass artist as well as some sculpture and even jewelry.

The deadline is this Sunday, the 19th for submitting and there is a fee (I believe it is only $7.00) to enter in this group. I originally had a much more elaborate design in mind, but due to the surgery I had and my down time for recovery, I had to shelve that idea (maybe next years!). This quick little painting was all that I could muster - I think it looks better in person than in the photo! The original on this is for sale.

Love the whimsy of this painting, especially the smug look. Very creative.

Love the humour (humor for you?) in this - made me smile.

Thanks all. Yes, this little sun has humor written all over it's face! And William, I hope you are right - I'd love to see it one Sunday morning also!
