Sunflowers!!! Don't you love the sight of the fields full of yellow sunflowers! A lot of artists were inspired by these big flowers. Van Gogh made several paintings with sunflowers. He made a study of it. First he painted the flowers lying on the ground, later he painted bouquets of sunflowers in a vase. These paintings were made to decorate the guestroom in the house of van Gogh in Arles where Gaugain was supposed to stay. Van Gogh made 4 different paintings but he was only satisfied by 2 to hang on the bedroom wall. Later he painted 3 copies of these paintings. One of them is hanging in The Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam.
You don't have to make a study of the sunflowers as van Gogh did. Only one artwork is enough! Together we will create our own Gallery of Sunflowers! You can even hang it on your bedroom wall. It's up to you!
You can send in your atwork untill the 23th of March.
