I love sunflowers!! They remind me of Kansas, where I was born and grew up as a child.
My family was mostly farmers. People that are very connected to the earth.
As a child we got this magazine called Country magazine and it was a photo driven publication that had page after glossy page of photos of Vermont and New Hampshire. I loved looking a the New England landscapes. The maple leaves in October with all the beautiful yellow, oranges and reds. When I finally got to visit New England in the Autumn, I was on my honeymoon and there were sunflowers every where.
And now sunflowers are a muse in my beloved artistic expression. This painting has a vibrancy that I love! What are your favorite flowers?
