Poolesville artist James Vissari at his easel in a sunflower field at the end of Sycamore Landing.
“Over the years, I keep painting and drawing the sunflowers. Inspired by Vincent van Gogh, when the sunflowers are in bloom, it’s on! If sunflowers don’t inspire your inner joy, so sad for you. Even in the heat and humid sun beating down on me, the entire experience sets me free.”
