Sunflowers that he planted behind him. They were so tall! Taller than him, that picture just summed him all up for us without any words, and we've all always loved that picture of him. Years later, Mom gave us a gold sunflower pendant, that I truly treasure. So I started drawing this girl, and I don't really know what happened but she ended up being a Sunflower Girl, and why not? In the original, there is a swirl of a quote in white lettering above her head that says: "Hold your head high, keep a smile upon your face, and turn your face into the sun" actually it is a verse from an old Jann Arden song. Sounds like perfect advice to me! Thinking of you, and missing you Mom!! Now I am ready to go enjoy this beautiful day, and I hope you will too!
