Years ago, Jonna (Faulkner) and Marcie Stone taught in the south of France with Gwen Gibson at Gwen’s wonderful home & studio in Dufort. While the women were teaching, I was out and about in the countryside, visiting villages, listening to “the Lady and the Unicorn” as an audiobook, and shooting sunflower fields because every last sunflower in France was in bloom. Some of the photos from that trip have been posted in these pages.
From that trip to today, I’ve had a real fondness for sunflowers. So, when I started seeing them at Trader Joe’s a few days ago, I just couldn’t resist. I figured, if the photos didn’t turn out, at least the flowers would look great in the house.
