It’s been a long time since I’ve shared a sunflower drawing with you. But, this one’s a real beauty and hopefully worth the wait. It took more than a little editing to get rid of all the smutz on it. Hopefully, my efforts only enhanced this vintage flower drawing and did nothing to detract from the original artist’s work.
Unfortunately, the artist is unknown. When George Routledge & Sons published The Artistic Language of Flowers in 1888, they did not identify any of the talented artists and poets who created the book.
I’m such a fan of sunflowers. They are a bit of sunshine. And, their yummy seeds are such a treat for humans and our backyard visitors. This vintage sunflower drawing features a single bloom on a long leafy stem. If you like it, be sure to click on the drawing shown below to access an even larger version.
