Sunflower


I saw this interesting piece of art hanging in an outdoor gallery along a floating sidewalk in Genoa Bay - a small community on Vancouver Island. The artist had many more pieces there but I liked this one best. Made from old saw blades, the title is Tournesol - Sunflower in French. I like the rustiness of the blades against the rock background. This would be a great idea for some outside art.

Yes, very interesting. To take something solid, rusty, hard and cold ...and have it represent a flower which has opposite qualities :)

How unusual.
Your study sounds interesting. Pity you did not live nearer as I have a number of books on English villages.
