"One Big Happy Family"


















12 x 12 Framed oil on Masonite
SOLD

These Shasta Daisies are so happy and bright. Made
me think of a big happy family enjoying their day.
Need to get a better photo of this. These rainy days
make it so hard to get a decent shot!

Gwen!

Now THIS is a painting! Out of all the recent pieces you posted, this is by far the strongest!

The blooms are not only richly colored but quite detailed too! Strong shadows and nicely cropped.

Bold and beautiful!

Excellent job on this one!!
