Daisies for Mom

I remember as a kid my mom always said her favorite flowers were daisies or violets.  I would often pick little bundles of them for her in the yard, or give her daisies for Mother's Day.  I think this is why I like to paint daisies often.  I painted her some a few years back, so I didn't think she would like another painting, but since I had some difficulty with the flower order to be delivered to her, I went to plan b: more painted daisies.  I placed on online order on Thursday for Sat. delivery and got email notification on Friday they couldn't find a florist that would deliver to her house.  This was odd since I've done this in the past, so I tried calling local florists direct and still had no luck.  I suppose they are just too swamped with orders from responsible kids that planned ahead :) 

Anyway, here is your daisies in a milk bottle Mom, Hope you have a great day and thank you for all of the life's lessons you have given me over the years.  I hear often from my friends that my mom must be a remarkable woman.  I agree emphatically.  Love you!

Spring is Finally Here

It's been awhile since my last post, mostly due to my busy spring schedule and getting ready for summer shows, as well as some other commitments near and dear to my heart (more on this later) Here is one of my more recent works.  It makes me think of summer and the joy I get from gardening and being in the yard.
