Is This Heaven


“Is This Heaven” … © Lois Bryan Photography and Digital Art

A tall and mighty sunflower, bursting with golden blooms, shoots straight and strong … right up to heaven. I don’t know what more inspiring and joyful way to spend the afternoon than standing in a field of these beauties.

John Kinsella: Is this heaven?
Ray Kinsella: It’s — it’s Iowa.
John: I could have sworn it was heaven.
Ray: Is there a heaven?
John: Oh, yeah. It’s the place where dreams come true.
Ray: Maybe this is heaven.

The above quote is from one of my all time favorite movies, “Field Of Dreams.” And though in the movie the fields are corn, not sunflowers, the feeling is the same. The magic is the same. I didn’t hear The Voice the day I went to the sunflower fields at Burnside Farms in Haymarket, Virginia … not with my ears … but I did hear it with my heart.  I love sunflowers!!!  That gorgeous sunny day, standing there amid zillions of golden sunflowers, is one I’ll never forget!  

As always, to see the image better just click it to go over to my website.  Once you’re there, mouse over the picture to get a peek at the details.  I had a lot of fun with this one … getting looser with brush work has been a goal of mine.  Sometimes my mood and the image work together for one style … sometimes it seems to work better in a different way.  But no matter … it’s always fun.



I'd love to hear your thoughts!
