Above It All

 Daisy close-up #5! I'm so excited to
continue painting these fun, playful flowers. Each one has their own unique personality. After I finished this one, I realized it looked like it was coming up out of the ocean! So, therein lies the title "Above It All." I never have a clue about how these paintings will evolve. I really try my hardest to just let the background inks work for themselves and do their magic. I love acrylic inks. The colors are amazing. I think I'll just have to keep making more daisies for a while!! Hope you're enjoying them.

Ruffled Feathers

I'm so happy to have finished daisy close-up #4. With all that there is to do around the holidays, it's a miracle to actually be able to stay focused on completing another painting. I'm totally excited about my daisy series. I plan to continue on with creating more of them. So fun and joyful! Great memories of summer for sure.

Fancy Dancer

Daisy close-up #3. I'm on a roll with painting daisies right now. Given winter's onset, I can't help but feel that the bright, liveliness of daisies, helps to make the sunshine peek through the frequent showers. It just makes me feel happy to be able to paint these lovely, glowing white flowers. A reminder that Spring will soon be on it's way.

Glow From Within
 Of course, as always, I'm inspired to paint one more Calla. I decided I wanted to try using totally different colors in the background than I used in the Calla itself. I normally would use some of each of the same color in the background and in the main subject so as to create a sense of cohesiveness. But, what the heck. It's always fun to try something new. I'm pretty tickled with the outcome. Hope you like it too...

Flamboyant One

 Having just returned from an incredible
Fall get away to mingle with the blazing colors of New England, I'm now ready to get back to work. Before I left home I knew I wanted to paint a series of daisy close-ups when I returned. So, here's the first of who knows how many will appear! Hope it brings a smile to your soul.
