THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
Full of earthy hues of greens and muted yellows, the Sunflower painting by Ioan Popei is a piece that speaks to the natural inclination of human nature to seek out light in times of darkness. The piece consists of a handful of sunflowers stretching eagerly towards their warm, yellow life source from the green and somewhat murky atmosphere that surrounds their base. These flowers in action symbolize a feeling of hope where persons are naturally inclined to follow their religious beliefs when faced with instances of uncertainty.
