Daisies are cropping up all over alongside the roads in Northwest Arkansas. I find myself dreaming up how to paint them as I travel on the road. What is really scary is that I would like to stop.....doesn't matter where....and pick some of them. Is this stealing? They are wild flowers and they don't look like they belong to anyone! I fear I have been a thief on occasion. Tempting they are and I have decided to give you a very small story in pictures about this painting - a painting demo starting at a decision making point. Here goes:
I have a tendency to over-do everything!!! I had such a good time painting the daisies that I tried to get them all on the painting support. This created a perfect ball for a bouquet (a manicured topiary!) (laugh). I decided I needed to take some of the daisies out!

This is better even though the bouquet is a little tight. I could paint more flowers out, but this is where I'll stop. I will paint another one with some real daisy flowers. This was good practice! Click here if interested:
