Yellow Daisies

8"x6" Oil on gessoboard

I picked a few of these small daisies and just plonked them in this vase to stand on my window ledge...but decided to paint them first. I like the shape of this small vase and I find yellow a difficult color to paint sometimes, so thought it would be a good challenge for me...and It was!!

Another very nice surprise..."Olive Snack" was selected for FASO's Fav 15% in theApril Boldbrush Competition....I can't believe it! That is the second one, It is really encouraging! 


  1. Congratulations! I love your olive snack. It is encouraging when someone else says your work is wonderful. The daisy vase is beautiful as well but the glass looks so smooth glossy. Love it.

  2. Two beauties. Congratulations, Karen. Well done!!

  3. Well done again on Olive Snack! Just love your yellow daisies and that vase is superb!!! The shine and reflective colours are amazing. It doesn't look like the yellow was difficult for you at all. :-)

  4. Two awesome paintings Karen, such a great shine on the top vase and wonderful 'olive snack' , It really deserved the selection, congrats !


Thanks for sharing your thoughts and comments, I love reading them...they keep me inspired!
