Sunlit Daisy

The drama of a dark backgrond created a more contemporary look than I am used to painting; this by permission from Michel Fleury for the photo reference. The way the sun hits the petals drew me in and kept me captivated until this painting was finished. Will I ever be able to paint a flower again without a black background, well we'll see.

About Me

My photo
As a child I began designing my own clothes while in 5th grade. Grandma let me use fabric from her stash and showed me how to use the treadle machine. My love for art and the creative began at that point, always having a current project of some kind. Painting has provided a unique creative outlet for me that I am thankful for, an exciting journey where there's always something new to learn.
