Acrylic painting Path of Glory  by Denise Gracias

Path of Glory

2016-Acrylic- 20" x 20" x 1.5"

The Camino to Santiago de Compostela (Walk of the Saint) passes through fields and fields and fields of sunflowers. In Spanish, sunflower is "girasol", meaning "directing toward the sun".They actually are always facing the sun.  In early morning, before the sun comes up, they seem so dejected yet hopeful, as they all face down. As the sun makes its appearance, they start to come to life, lifting their magnificent flowers to greet it.  By mid-morning, their joy and glory is so tangible, that it makes the heat of the day just a little more bearable.
