Please Don't Eat the Daisies



Anyone who knows my painting journey knows I've had a lot of trouble painting
flowers.
I love flowers, I was a florist for years, we raise a lot of flowers, many of which we sell to florists, 
I have cut flowers in my home practically everyday that we have any blooming.
But still I struggle painting them.

This is from a bud vase of daisies, lavender and pastel yarrow we grow.
The bud vase is an antique that I love.
So I set out to paint them once again,
and I'm finally happy with the result.

I have a progression of this piece that I'm sending out in my newsletter.
If you would like to see the steps needed to get there,

Thanks for looking.

I'm a nature artist and I love to paint old barns, rivers and lakes, trees and fence rows. I work almost daily trying to improve my art and all that entails. I try to learn all I can from others and from the earth itself by being aware of all God has created and its beauty. You can purchase paintings by contacting me at slgraves6@gmail.com.
