Weekly Photo Challenge: Friendship

The sunflowers are a gift from a friend.

This photograph was taken in the art room today on my iPhone.  Most of the middle schoolers were on a trip. After lunch I had a few who didn’t get to attend.  This wonderful painting was created by a young man named Scott.  He painted the sunflowers a friend had brought me.

I didn’t want to leave the flowers at home alone so took them with me to school. They were so vibrant and summery.

Oh, the unexpected surprise of the gift of flowers from a good friend.

Friday after school,  I put the bouquet on the front seatand when I arrived at my son and DIL’s home  and took them out of the car, my granddaughter ran down the hill of the front yard to greet me and said excitedly when she saw them, “Oh we studied that artist! ”  Later in the craft store she picked up a Starry Night Umbrella and told me it was the same artist as the Sunflowers. She’s 8 1/2 and just completed second grade Tuesday.

Thanks for the flowers, friend.  I thought it would cheer you to see them in Scott’s painting.

(And that eyeball glaring from the chair is from the cover of a book that belongs to Scott’s classmate and friend, J, who told me he has checked out the photos on this blog!  Cool. )

  1. Remarkable that your granddaughter recognized and remembered Van Gogh. Cute that J made it into the shot, too, although perhaps his ear may have been more appropriate.

  2. Friends are beautiful people to have. A gift from them brings joy to the heart. You share your gift of photography with everyone and make friends all over the world. THANK YOU!

  5. That’s exactly the painter that came to mind when I saw your preview photo.. before even reading your blog. I think that young artist should keep painting! Lovely!

  8. I suspect your friend had no idea the impact those flowers would have on *so many* people. It’s gifts like these that have such amazing positive power.
