I just love it when my paintings are welcomed into a new home! This sunflower painting was created as I presented “Find Your Focal Point” in Austin. I see the sunflower as a picture in nature of an attitude of the heart that can sustain us through various life circumstances. Watch what sunflowers do…
This remarkable quality called “heliotropism” (turning to track the sun) is a picture of how our hearts can turn to face the LORD throughout the ups and downs of every day.
The sunflower always makes me think of Hebrews 12:2-3 “Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, scorning it’s shame and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider HIM, who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.”
A question from the Pondering Palette: Has your heart been like a sunflower lately?
