Sunflowers are beginning to bloom and I am a big fan of these flowers. I wanted to share this quote along with my art, it is borrowed from a movie called “Calendar Girls”, and is a great line that echos part of my sentiments.

“I don’t think there’s anything on this planet that more trumpets life than the sunflower. For me that’s because of the reason behind its name. Not because it looks like the sun but because it follows the sun. During the course of the day, the head tracks the journey of the sun across the sky. A satellite dish for sunshine. Wherever light is, no matter how weak, these flowers will find it. And that’s such an admirable thing. And such a lesson in life”.

Anyone needs some sunflowers in your life?

From “my view from 1502” series, I have these five canvases that were painted during the daily painting project that this blog originated. They are 8×10 inch canvas, painted in oils, and up for grabs.
