It as been a long and dreary winter in Ohio this year that doesn’t seem to want to end. When the weather is above 20 degrees, I go out to my garden to look for any sign of spring. A sprout from a crocus, a bud on a tree, something… anything! Yet, I’ve found nothing. It’s so depressing.
When I went to grocery store, I saw sunflowers in the fresh flower section. Sunflowers are so bright and cheerful, something I need in late March, so that became my inspiration. What I like about this painting, are the little images of pearls, chairs and eyeglasses that can be seen in the white section. I have a hand pointing to the word, “Sunflower” and a partial elephant in the upper left corner. When it’s viewed from farther away, all the little images blend in to be just a pretty picture of sunflowers.
