Oil on gessoed masonite, 6"x6"


Today is one 
Of those days, again
When no one is
Around him 
To show him what love is

He looks up
With sun-filled eyes
His hearts turns
Into sunflowers

Even if he no longer can see
He knows where
The sun is
His flowers will let him know

When my friends were busying painting a water jug still life, husband Mark came in with a bunch of sunflowers. I dropped everything and quickly painted them. I was in awe of the beauty. But I didn't quite capture the leaves. A few days later, I had to invent the leaves. They are fuzzy now as if in dreams.
