"Sunflower (Homage to Vincent & Georgia)"

pastel 13" x 10" 2001

I did this still life after returning from an inspiring weekend in Santa Fe. We visited the Georgia O'Keefe Museum, where I saw her single sunflower in front of a pure blue sky. Of course Vincent Van Gogh is one of my muses. So with these two in mind, I did my own version of a sunflower. Thank you both. I tried to grow my own sunflowers to draw, but the snails and squirrels got to them first.
