Artist's description:

A somewhat larger painting, 36 x 36, oil and acrylic on large stretcher bars. I have changed this painting a number of times, but, wanted to capture a feeling of wonder with the sky. This painting is from a vantage point of seeing the sunflower up close but your attention is focused on the clouds and beautiful sky. (This would not happen with a camera, because one or the other, either the sky or the flower would be in focus while the other would not). It reminds me of Magritte's painting called "the false mirror" which has a human eye with a sky within it.

"By choosing a human eye as a lens to look at the sky, Magritte essentially raises a question about humans (represented by the eye, our visual connection to anything else) seeing, both literally and figuratively, the world (represented by the sky). In any type of philosophy, the way that humans perceive the world, their location, is essential to understanding the general human condition."

sides are painted black, wired and ready to hang. If shipping is less than price I have for shipping, I will refund that amount. Some of my pieces are large and there is no way to distinguish that on artfinder.

Materials used:

acrylic and oil on canvas
