Synkroniciti is excited to welcome Houston visual artist Carol Farmayan. Her stunning acrylic painting, “Daylily” is featured in our new “Flow” issue. The intensity of color, the flow and motion of brushstrokes from the center suggest the exuberance of life, of a flower blossoming from creative energy. It almost explodes into our view and we get the sense of abundance which not only meets us, but draws us in.
As Sir Arthur Conan Doyle put into the mouth of Sherlock Holmes in The Naval Treaty: “Our highest assurance of the goodness of Providence seems to me to rest in the flowers. All other things, our powers, our desires, our food, are all really necessary for our existence in the first instance. But this rose is an extra. Its smell and its color are an embellishment of life, not a condition of it. It is only goodness which gives extras, and so I say again that we have much to hope from the flowers.”
“Daylily” engenders that same sense of hope and goodness.

Carol Farmayan was born in Corpus Christi, Texas.
She received a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts degree from the University of Texas many, many years ago! Her focus has usually been on painting and drawing, but throughout the years she has explored other mediums, such as metalsmithing, printmaking, collage, and artist-book making.
“My painting, ‘Daylily,’ shows how nature has influenced my work. I am drawn to nature, not because of its pure scientific facts, but because of its infinite colors and shapes that enrich our world. Flowers, birds, skies, even a blade of grass—are all works of art.”
