Vibrant and strong, Sunflowers are symbolic of adoration.
W&N watercolour on Bockingford 300gsm watercolour paper – A Sunflower in my garden (Tarlton, South Africa)
I see you there in glory shining bright, Following the sun and its path of light. Standing tall above all others in the field, You grow, conquer, and do not yield. The little birds take great delight In playing round you, from day to night. With your petals of yellow and leaves of green How very easily you are seen! Extract from ‘Poem to a Sunflower’ By Katherine R. Lane (April 19, 1995)
Sunflower (Helianthus annuus) is an annual plant native to the Americas and widely used as fodder, bird food and for oils in the cooking industry in South Africa.
I am a watercolorist living on my little piece of African soil in Tarlton, Gauteng, South Africa. The inspiration for my art is the wonderfully rich variety of Fauna and Flora to be found throughout this beautiful country. “There is a fine line between dreams and reality; it’s up to you to draw it.”
