Within a five or ten minute drive from my home I am in farm land. Cornfields grow right to the sides of the roads. One day my daughter, Nicole, was riding through the rural landscape when she discovered these wild sunflowers poking their blossoms up through the corn. It was as though they were pleading for the sun to wash them with its light.
I have tried to represent their gesture and the dramatic appearance of the petals and leaves. You will see the shadows and light. There are differing shades of green and yellow. The blue sky peeks out between the clouds.
