ICAD Day 7

The prompt for Day 7 is "Yellow".  I decided to interpret Van Gogh's Sunflowers on a postcard using acrylics. 

Sunflowers had a special significance for Van Gogh. He made seven versions of them.
Yellow, for him, was an emblem of happiness – in Dutch literature, the sunflower was a symbol of devotion and loyalty. In their various stages of decay, these flowers also remind us of the cycle of life and death.


  1. Lovely Van Gogh-inspired painting of the sunflowers. If only he could have known how many people would love and be inspired by his work.

  2. I love the bright vibrant tones, Sunflowers are a great subject to paint.
