I got the idea for this painting from some really tall sunflowers in the neighbors yard. They were leaning down over the block wall and seemed almost menacing in the way they towered above us. The greens, blues, and rays of white sunlight in the painting seem almost peaceful, so in order to get the threatening mood across I needed to add a potential victim (the red bird). I prefer to think that the bird will yet escape from the six deadly sunflowers and their collection of bones.
