You are my sunshine

My mom took a nasty fall and ended up in hospital for a long stay. Instead of sending flowers, that she will just watch wild by the bedside, I painted her this sunflower to help lift her spirits. 8X10 acrylic on wood panel.

Beautiful work for your Mom. I'm sure she'll be proudly showing it to all the nurses and doctors. Very well done.

Re: You are my sunshine

Lovely sunflower, I hope her spirits rose and has a 'proud mum moment' when she looks at the sunflower.

Beautiful gesture.

Sorry to hear about your Mom's fall. Your sunflower could lift anyone's spirits. Nicely done.

Post Re: You are my sunshine

What a lovely thing to do. Thanks for sharing this to us!

It reminds me about the colour yellow in rose symbolism: They give a message of appreciation and love without the romantic notion of red roses. These flowers are a good bunch to give to your friends and family for well-wishers of health and speedy recovery, or to simply show your appreciation. I read this very detailed article on the history of the colour yellow, and how we can use it in practical ways in our art-making. That's where I learned this fun fact from!
