Strong Red Sunflowers

Sunflowers are not only beautiful, but they are a strong flower. They will grow under some pretty rigorous circumstances. Sunflowers are determined to bloom– and they will, even if they don’t get very big.

About Rachel Heu

"Creativity is an act of defiance. You're challenging the status quo. You're questioning accepted truths and principles. You're asking three universal questions that mock conventional wisdom: Why do I have to obey the rules? Why can't I be different? Why can't I do it my way?" --Twyla Tharp, The Creative Habit: Learn It and Use It For Life (pg. 133)

    Hi Rachel. Your work is absolutely beautiful. I love this one, Red Sunflowers and Pink Peonies. These colors speak to me. Do you sell prints of your work?

      Oh, Liz… thank you so much for the kind feedback! I’m currently working on a new site where people can buy giclee prints of my work on demand, as well as the originals. But… it’s not quite ready yet– I’m anticipating that I can have it ready by late August. I plan to make an announcement in my blog and also on ‘s Facebook page. I’d be happy to email you, if you like. 🙂
