Wilting --- Day 4/220

Walk: Union Square, Patagonia
Distance: 1 mile


Vincent van Gogh, Sunflowers, 1889, 36.2" x 28.7",  oil on canvas

Arranging flowers has Ciwt exhausted.  Imagine the energy needed to paint the life spectrum, from full bloom to death as van Gogh did in his Sunflowers series. (Take in each individual flower and then how they relate to each other.  Profound and moving - and the reason far beyond prettiness these paintings by van Gogh are among the world's most enduringly captivating).
