Artist's Description

W & N watercolours on Arches 300gsm – 10″ × 7″
Flowers have an expression of countenance as much as men and animals. Some seem to smile; some have a sad expression; some are pensive and diffident; others again are plain, honest and upright, like the broad-faced sunflower and the hollyhock.
- Henry Ward Beecher
We’ve been having lots of cold and rainy days here in Gauteng (South Africa), and yesterday I felt I just HAD to brighten up the day with something smiling! Not that I don’t smile during rainy weather, I love it!, but I’ve been posting so many blue and “wet” images, that I thought a bit of sunflower sunshine would be nice.
Sunflowers are a very important crop in South Africa (ask me, I know, what would I feed my birds if there were no Sunflowers?!)
