The response when I posted the pictures of the painting on social media, struck me as funny! People thought it took like 2 minutes and the event I was responding to was that day. – Struck me as funny? I really have a hard time understanding the Instamatic perception and readily forget this new way.

For years I have been drawn to sunflowers – I’ve painted, sculpted, video, printed, performed, and never have I felt so stimulated as when-
I was driving home from yachting on Lake Champlain with a client now friend and came across a 60+ acker field of sunflowers – this took my breath away – the bright colors, orange, yellow, maroon, and greens overwhelmed my senses, against the pale, blue, gray, sky of midday, in the gentle breeze, which appeared to disclose the conversations of hundreds or even thousands of sunflowers, as the bees splashed and dashed with their pollen-filled bodies singing to the him of- absolutely amazing!
With this I spend the day hinged on a sliver of the edge of the road and feeling jyped because I had to go back to the studio and meet clients – Yup theses are the things that make me late or even not show up- just so you know!
The pictures that I took remind me and bring me immediately back to those feeling – every time I think about this I get excited and I’m called to – I gotta Make!
I read –
Vincent van Gogh’s sunflower paintings opened a door to a new evolution in decor and art. Not only did Vincent van Gogh inspire others to paint sunflowers, but he also created a trend that would span various lifestyles and personas. Van Gogh’s infamous sunflowers altered many views on color schemes, exaggerated features, and stereotypically beautiful flowers in minimalistic form.
