In a reminiscent mood today, as evidenced by this wistful still life. The large decaying sunflower head reminds me of ones famously painted by van Gogh. So I guess I've been day-tripping to the French countryside, since I've been spending time recently with the bygone painters from that famous region. Though Vincent van Gogh was actually Dutch, he spent a great deal of time painting in and around the Arles region of France.
