How could this flower NOT be an inspiration?
I wanted to paint one more sunflower this summer, so there were a few photos I was deciding on. I loved them all so somebody had to make a decision.
I decided to ask my 10 year son, as he is proving to be quite the artistic sounding board.
This is the one he chose. It was actually my third choice of the three I showed him. But since I asked "which one should I paint" it seemed rude to not take his advice.
He was right! I LOVE this new sunflower. It is as if it alive with a ring of fire. Thus the name "Sunflower Flame." Well that, and the idea that I am in still in love with sunflowers.
