The first in what I hope will be an ongoing series of sunflower paintings. It has been a joy to watch my sunflower garden unfurl this summer. Each weekend brought a new growth stage. Today, alas, they have entered the end stage, and soon will die.
I have been inspired by so many artists, but in the sunflower quest I'm particularly impressed by Jimmy Wright, who'se never painted anything but sunflowers.
I think sunflowers represent life; you unfurl and blossom, then you wither an die. It happens to everyone. I just hope I can make the best of my blossom time!
