I don't think that art imitates life; nor does life imitate art. I rather believe that true art imitates God. The Sweet-Psalmist of Israel, David cried,
"The heavens declare the Glory of God and the firmament showeth His handiwork." How much more than, should the humble works of our hands bring glory to the Heavenly Father?
I bought this lovely old Sunflower afghan in a thrift store last Saturday. After all, how could I let someone's loving handiwork languish in obscurity in the back of a second-hand store? This craftswoman and Vincent must be kindred spirits!
