A Day For Daisies


Wow! Well it's been an eventful day. I got this watercolor painting done today. I usually work from my own photographs, but last week a blog friend sent me this up close photo, and wow- I loved working with it. I'm thinking the title will be "A Day for Daisies". I think they are daisies- What do you think? Any comments?!

An opportunity came up today to hang a show of my work here locally. I am so excited about this, and yet there is so much work to do in order to get ready. I will need to have 20-25 pieces ready to hang within a few weeks! About two thirds is ready-

So, back to work I go.....  SOLD

You seem to be able to work quickly and produce some amazing art. How long did this painting take you? It's beautiful!

Glad to hear about the show. Please post when and where it will be. If I can, I would love to come.
