THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
The Sunflowers with an Apple painting is an intricate piece that displays the notion of love tainted. The sunflower is a symbol of fidelity. Every single day, the blooms turn toward the sun, reaching toward its warmth as a life source. It adores the sun as the sun provides it with everything it needs to live a long life. Yet the apple tucked away to the side of the photo represents temptation, perhaps suggesting a lustful desire that was shamefully appeased. This is also evidenced by the way some of the overflowing blooms of the sunflowers have fallen apart and toppled to the ground, breaking that sense of loyalty and trust.
