Sunflower, Untitled

Sunflower, Untitled (for now)
Watercolor on Claybord

Sometimes a painting will just take on a life of it's own. I think that is what happened with this one. I had not really intended for this to be such a low-key, dark painting. But this flower seemed to have a different agenda, pulling in and holding onto dark, mysterious places.

The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.
