SUNFLOWERS OF CASTIGLION FIORENTINO
Tuscany, against the foothills of the Apennine Mountains sits the small, walled-city of Castiglion Fiorentino. It is in magical places such as this that the soul of the region resides. It is here, in the shadow of the ancient stone tower, Il Cassero, that cultivated fields and Old World charm thrive.
“These large girasole are just now reaching their full maturity and are covered with a million buzzing bumble bees. Their heads are heavy with the seeds and have begun to lean over with the weight. The petals droop gently down across their giant smiling faces. Too heavy to follow the sun, the flowers simply remain facing east.”
“Sometimes I park outside the main gate of the city, and walk up into the busy streets to go to my local post office or shop for a local wine or book. There is a coffee bar and pizza place just outside the massive, medieval gate, where old men always sit playing poker, laughing and talking. The old women are never with them. They are inside the village walls hanging out the clothes to dry above the narrow streets, running small shops, buying fresh bread for the day and talking loudly to each other. Their voices echo noisily within the ancient stone walls.”
You can brighten any room with happiness of fresh flowers and the romance of Tuscany. Sunflowers of Castiglion Fiorentino is available as an oversized MasterWork™ Fine Art Canvas for large spaces and as a moderately-sized Fine Art Canvas Edition as well. You might not have a home in Tuscany, but with the art of June Carey you can enjoy Tuscany in your home!
