sumi sunflower . . .

Posted by
DULCIE (Danville, CA, United States) on 8 September 2011 in Abstract & Conceptual and Portfolio.

While driving, I suddenly came upon a half dozen old-fashioned sunflowers just blazing in the sunlight. Had to pull the car over and find a place to park so I could grab some pics. No camera with me :-( but, I had my trusty iPhone !! :-)

Seems made of a very special fabric, stunning rendering like canvas and i love the colors, such a rich palette and light through is great too, always have loved sunflowers especially for what you show here : their so touching heavy heads full of who-knows-what ? ;) Thanks Dulcie*
