New Daisy painting ~

The Daisies are in full bloom! They grow wild and the other day I picked a vase full as my subject for a new painting. I read somewhere that if you put an aspirin and a tsp. of sugar in the water it keeps the flowers longer. So I did and took the arrangement into the studio. I worked out my color palette and laid in the background color on my panel, with the plan to begin painting the next morning.

Guess what? The aspirin killed the flowers! I came into the studio the next morning to find all the flowers keeled over. Bad information! I had to go in search of fresh flowers and luckily was able to find some as they are starting to end their life cycle. I made a sketch and transferred it over to my panel and now all is good! That’s if nothing else weird happens over night!

More to come as I progress.

Daisies

It’s Daisy time in our neck of the woods, and I’m looking forward to creating some new works with these cute little flowers. They grow wild in our area, and last a long time. The best part about them is they don’t smell so great and the deer leave them alone! I have to grow my gardens with fencing around them to save my plants from the ravenous deer. All they do is eat, yet they look like they are starving! But the daisies, they thrive and don’t become a deer’s mid-nite snack!

Here’s a few Daisy paintings for my Daisy loving buds:
