ABOUT THE WORK
Day 3 – ‘Follow the Sun’
I often wonder if motorists heading north from Denver on 1-25 have noticed the fields of Sunflowers. They seem to be waving to you as you drive by.
The bright yellow sunflowers under the Colorado blue sky inspire me to paint them over and over.
A little more trivia today – Sunflowers track the sun, also referred to as heliotropism, in a study by ScienceMag, scientists reveal sunflowers have circadian rhythms which promote this behavior. A young sunflower’s face follows the sun from sunrise to sunset every day and repeat the cycle until maturity.
