Sunflower Painting Revisited

 Nothing is more simple or universal than the sunflower.

 I painted this little painting several years ago and I still have it.  I love the way it brings light and cheer to a dark corner. The painting is about the  choice we all have  to see any situation in the dark or in the light.  The photography is drastically different in the two shots.  One is overly dark and dismal and the other is polyanna-light.  The real painting is somewhere in between.

Oils 6" x 6"

Painted from a photograph my husband took 30 years ago!  I must have been a child bride. LOL.  I loved painting it.
