Dandelions {Bountiful Observations no. 16} SOLD

Dandelions

Dandelions

{8" x 8" (20.3 x 20.3 cm) – oil on canvas panel}
SOLD
Framed painting: $300.00 starting bid + S&H

After painting the smaller composition of dandelions, I immediately wanted to try a bigger version, with more flowers and variation. So over two days I worked on this painting, fighting against time and the flowers because dandelions are constantly changing! I have learned that the life of one flower exists for about 48 hours from bud to puff.

This painting will also be framed in silver.

This is a painting from my Bountiful Observations series, with 25% of the net proceeds of each sale being donated to the American Horticultural Society.

Found your blog through DPW. Your work is wonderful! Love the dandelions! Besides being a beautiful painting it shines a light on the fact that we can find beauty anywhere.

Thanks Kathleen :) Beauty is everywhere, I think we just need to slow down and let it sink in sometimes...

After admiring your painting, the other day, I left a few dandelions safe with the mow lawner, in order to paint them;then, I forgot.
I love your dandelions!

Haha Sylviane, my husband will often leave patches in the yard so I can "harvest" weeds for paintings as well :)
