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:
These paintings are on sale for a limited time! I’d love to wrap one up and send it to you! If you don’t like it, send it back. No questions asked!
This past weekend, I transplanted my Morning Glory seedlings into hanging baskets. I saw an idea on Pinterest to grow Morning Glories in hanging baskets and let the vines cascade down. It makes a stunning display of color! Last year I grew the flowers on a trellis in the garden but they were too close to the fence and the deer ate the vines, leaving me with nothing! This year I’m outsmarting them and growing my favorite blue flowers hanging from our top decks, 20′ in the air! Take that deer!
Here’s a few of my favorite Morning Glory paintings:
I’m looking forward to creating some more Morning Glory floral paintings this year! And, if you’re on Pinterest follow me and of course I’ll follow back!
The inspiration for this oil painting came from a Monarch butterfly that was injured and spent a few days on our driveway before finally flying away. And of course the sweet daisies that grow wild in our area was a must for the story. What can I say? I love how this painting turned out. I enjoy painting true to life and all the little details. The painting measures 6″x6″ on a 2″ gallery wrapped canvas. It’s one of my faves!
“Pink Fuchsia Buds” in colors of light pink oils painted on a dark canvas, evokes a sense of mystery! This piece was created on a 6″x6″ box canvas. Pair it perfectly with the “Single Fuchsia Flower” painted on a mini 4″x4″ box canvas:
“In art, intentions have no place; only results. In good art, the results do not have to be explained. As a matter of fact, there is but one kind of art and that is good art. There is no comfortable halfway station; it is either fine, or it is not art.”
