For Anna Mariea

For Anna Mariea, Acrylic on canvas, 36"x24" - Toni Youngblood 2013

I had been meaning  to paint this picture for a couple of years, as well as others of the sunflowers in my garden.  In May, I lost a dear and wonderful woman who has been in my life for my whole life and was like a mother in the love she showed to me and all those dear ones in her life.  Upon losing her, I began this overdue painting.  While working on it, I was able to think of her with love and cry and smile and paint.  Anna Mariea's favorite flower:  The Sunflower.  Anna Mariea, you brought so much joy and love into our lives with your expansive, inclusive heart.  xToni
