Sunflowers 1888 by Vincent van Gogh is one of my favourite paintings, despite my heart belonging to the Abstract and Cubist movements (Kandinsky and Picasso in particular), and sunflowers are probably my favourite type of flowers.

Seeing this painting at the National Gallery never fails to make me smile, and coming out of the National Gallery to be greeted by blue skies and the sight of Nelson's Column in Trafalgar Square and Big Ben in the not-so-far distance reminds me I'm truly lucky to live in London.

Hope you've all had lovely long weekends. x
