the Miracle of a Single Flower
Buddha says "If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change."
This macro shot is of the heart of a sunflower. Sunflowers are one of my favourite floral subjects for the diversity of shots you can find. There is just so much interest going on!
Fun facts about sunflowers:
-The scientific name of sunflowers is Helianthus, Helia for sun and Anthus for flower.
-The tallest recorded sunflower was grown in the Netherlands. It reached 25' 5.5" WOW!
-Sunflower heads consist of 1,000 to 2,000 individual flowers joined together by a receptacle base.
-One sunflower can produce up to 2,000 seeds.
-Sunflowers originally came from the U.S. They are the state flower for Kansas.
Artist's Finishing Recommendations:
FAA's fashionable and luminescent Acrylic Print would be my pick to compliment and enhance the vibrant colours of this piece.
