Artist Comments

I love all flowers; however, the sunflower is one of my favorites. I love the bright sunshine-yellow petals and huge blossoms that resemble the sun. Most sunflower paintings are composed of the front of the blossom. However, the backsides of some flowers are just as beautiful, and the sunflower is certainly one.

About Sunflowers

    • The sunflower is a plant that is native to North America. Later it was introduced to Mexico and Peru. They can grow up to 6 feet tall and prefer dry, sunny places where their roots can dig deep into the soil.
    • When the plant is in the bud stage, it will face the sun following its movement across the sky from horizon to horizon. This movement allows it to get the maximum amount of the sun’s rays. After the flower has fully opened into the radiance of yellow petals, it will face only east. No one knows why it does this. One theory is it is possibly a defensive response to prevent the sun from scalding the seed pod during hot summer days.
    • The sunflower is often equated as a symbol of spiritual faith, worship, adoration, loyalty, and longevity, perhaps because it always seeks the “Light.”
