the sunflower~

my favorite flower besides the rose is the sunflower. i think they are a perfect flower and cannot help but bring a smile to the face...this is a huge painting that i have hanging in our family room. we have cathedral ceilings in that room so any artwork has to be large..so when i saw this painting at marshalls department store on clearance i knew it was meant for me..i love me a good bargain!! thinking about this painting always brings a smile to my face, it is my villa in italy..how beautiful to wake up to this view everyday, someone is doing that, wish it was me...oh well, at least i have my painting and i have been to italy and will visit again, i rubbed the boar's nose. you probably are saying what is she talking about well, in florence, there is a statue of a boar(i think it is a boar)and the legend is if you rub its nose you will return..so i know i will return someday....ciao!~*~*~

I have just posted about smiles too! Must be the time for it. Sunflowers make me smile - they have such a happy outlook. Great picture - that clear blue sky is awesome too.

Hugs,

love your fantasy of a little villa among the flowers.

can you imagine walking thru a field of sunflowers like that ?

Well okay okay ! in that fantasy there are no bugs , your long skirt does not get caught on anything , it is not that hot out, etc. etc. !

Love this picture and can understand why you bought it.

Sunflowers are such happy flowers. Raising their faces to the sun.

Gorgeous!

Sunflowers rock! I love your picture! They are everywhere in Kansas and we have a big patch of the common sunflower next to our barn. My husband always wants to weed whip them out but I won't let him! The crop sunflowers are struggling though because of the drought. Did you know the Inca worshipped them?
