Black Eyed Susan
Statue dedicated to the strong and bright flowers that greet me, 2017
Black Eyed Susan is strong and wise.
"Black Eyed Susan" embodies the intensity of this flower and the mystery of its wisdom and fortitude.
I created her in celebration of these flowers that thrive so brightly. I ruminate on their strength, of self regeneration, and their reclamation of space year after year. I wonder at their vigor, of how long they stand bright and fresh against the strongest hottest summer sun. I marvel at their tenacity to withstand the heat and manage to make good use of water. And I drink in their beauty, and the bright yellow and their dark centers and their fuzzy leaves.
This Statue stands 10" tall and 4'' at the widest spots.
