Vincent and Tom, Umbria Calling: Sunflower Splendor Beckons
How not to think of Van Gogh today while looking out over the sunflower fields bordering our Umbria farmhouse?
…and of course, thoughts of my artist brother Tom, too, and his sunflower wonders (and wishing he were here to paint the golden glory):
I sent him a few of the photos I took of the glorious sunflower fields bordering our farmhouse and hope they might inspire one of his gems?
…or perhaps those fields we passed on on our way home from Lake Bolsena and Orvieto the other day….?
…or a photo once shot near Spello?
I hope Tom will immortalize the splendor – and in the meantime, I’ll just enjoy the golden glory all around:
