Painting daisies on a good day

These unique daisies only grow in the wild in one or two places in the entire world. One of those spots is a rocky quarry near Marblehead and Lakeside, Ohio. I took some pictures the last time I was there and used them as a guide to create this piece.

Underneath this painting lies the skeleton of another painting I started and gave up on. And so it goes... painting is like living. Sometimes you have a good day and sometimes you wish you could just go back to bed and start the day over. It's quite possible to re-do your painting, unlike your life.
