The way you put this, it makes the Sunflower seem like the Lotus of the south - or rather the Lotus of the West, in the South. Spectacular symbolism and that feeling that's hard to describe, but sits in my abdomen between my belly button and sternum anyway.


Anchored stalks, stretching fingers--- along with the sheer appearance (and absence) of faces beneath the upheaval - or uprising - of blooming continuance! Wonderful, Dale!

I loved this when I first saw it on the cover of Country Roads Magazine, but after reading this it speaks to me even more. It takes my breath away.

  • Mama Don't Allow
    GONNA SING MY HEAD OFF "Mama don't allow no singin' round here...Gonna sing my head off anyhow!" I am in my element. These are my colored, sparkling jewels: wrapped with my grandfather in his swing, "Sweet Chariot" his sole repertoire, my grandmother's ole gray goose dead, a pistol hidden under flowers in her basket, and me...loud, obnoxious, consistently off-key, and always out of tune.

  • So Rang the Bellwether
    SO RANG THE BELLWETHER The 120" x 72" oil on linen painting is an abstraction of the rain forest theme and depicts the ominous warning of man's intrusion into the untouched and pristine rain forest. "So Rang the Bellwether called me to wake up, pay attention, come out of my house, and witness a vast and deadly intrusion of man into the virgin landscape of the rain forest," said Fairbanks. "I was unprepared for the impact of oil on linen, the ominous fires, the shafts of light that forced their way through the lush greens to pierce my complacency."
