I love sunflowers and looking at Van Gogh’s paintings certainly inspires me. The hand-dyed/hand-painted fabrics along with the quilting add a painterly feel to this piece. Includes extensive thread painting. Mat is linen and it is framed. This won first place at the 2004 Maine Women in the Arts annual awards show. Sunflowers was part of a special exhibit with students of Marilyn Belford at Images 2006, as well as an invitational exhibit at the Earlville Opera House, NY, August 2007.
