Painting Daisies in the Studio


On February 16th, we were shopping at Walmart and they had Valentine bouquets clearanced for like $6 or $7. Perfect!


Pure white daisies are one of my favorites.  Love them and they last a LONG time.


So pretty! So I decided that they were fabulous inspiration for my next painting.


A quick sketch in my sketchbook one morning before I left for work.


Then I added some daisies on top of a background that I created.


Love these.


Added some stems.


Love how they are looking.


Added some more daisies and started working on stems.


And right now I’m here. I had planned to add some detail, but my husband likes it the way that it is, so I may leave it.  I’ve moved it to the dining room so that I can peak at it several times a day to decide what I want to do with it next.  I’m tempted to add a word to the top and maybe some India ink drops, but I may really just leave it as it is.  And the more I look at it, the more I’m thinking that I really need to add some yellow to the daisy centers.   Open-mouthed smile  I’ll keep you posted.

Happy Friday!

I think that daises would look pretty with yellow in the middle of them :)
