Media: Paint on wood panel.

The flower seems to be in a field but it is not in the ground of this field directly. It is in a clay pot set on the ground, which makes it stand out (even isolates it) in respect to a more normal setting. The flower is, however, connected directly to the sun, seen in their spontaneous forms that resemble each other so closely. A great amount of heat seems to be generated by the sun, for better and for worse: the leaf of the potted plant is blue with red hot tip, yet the plant stands firm with a brilliant white flower.
