Sunflowers on Sullivans Island

I found these sunflowers and had to paint them.

Oh Anne, Your paintings are beautiful. You really are rising within yourself. Keep doing this. Your work is "transporting".

I found this quote from a spiritual person (from long ago) and it reminded me of your force in art, and what it is all about.

"For the most part, contemporary artists no longer seek
inspiration in the higher realms of consciousness. They amuse
themselves by manipulating words, sounds, colours and forms and
by creating all kinds of combinations. Because they demonstrate
a great deal of imagination and originality, people look and
listen, but they do not feel transported. And yet some of these
artists even claim to be mystics. Well, no, they have no real
spiritual criteria.
Those of you with an artistic vocation must be very clear about
one thing: before you create, you must strive to rise within
yourself into the purity and light, in order to ‘photograph’ or
‘record’ celestial realities. Only by doing so will you bring to
earth reflections of the harmony and intelligence of the world

Anne, You've got it all. Go with it. Just let it go. R
