Patiently Posing

Fay Terry, PATIENT DAISY, 6 x 6" oil on gesso bord panel, © 2012
I picked this daisy from the garden, it was the first of my Gerberas to bloom this year, so it earned a place of honor in my studio.  Today I realized it was time to paint it while it was still in its prime.  The leaves on the side are from a Japanese maple and they are very yellow green and lacey.  I am somewhat pleased with the result and I am sure I will have more of these to paint as they bloom all spring and summer.

    1. Oh how I LOVE color! Isn't it great that we don't have to live a black and white life!
      I know you love it too, Page.
      I saw in an e-mail from a gallery that you will be doing a demo there - I think in August-how I would love to see it!
      Happy Painting and thanks for looking and commenting.

  2. Fay this painting is beautiful! It is my favorite. I just love everything about it. I bet you had fun painting this and had a clear vision from the start. Bravo!

    1. Thanks so much, Patti. Having fun makes all the difference, doesn't it? If I get frustrated, the painting never seems to work out. Some days are better than others for painting, but it all combines into happiness. Thanks for commenting.
