Wanting to defy gravity is something that man has a deep fascination for. To be able to float without a care even if its for a short time and I guess painting does that for me. When I'm in the middle of a painting I am completely lost, in that short time all worries and cares are left by the wayside.
A friend of mine who has supported me since I began painting urges me to put feeling into my work. This sunflower floating in the vase goes in someway towards that goal of conveying my feelings.
