A presumptuous sunflower.

Who can presume to paint a sunflower except in hommage to Vincent Van Gogh? Perhaps the only excuse is to pay homage to Nature.
The sentiment on this card written by Vincent to his brother Theo voices the wish I think that is within all of us. The beauty that surrounds us is surely worth noting and memorialising, I have often thought that the beauty that is in Nature is wasted on us if we do not attempt to notice it in some way, however humble and this perhaps is what separates us from the rest of creation.
Thank you Vincent.
