Daffodils are spring to me. Its almost impossible to grow them in So. California, thank goodness for Trader Joe’s wonderfully affordable daffodils! These are interesting to paint, just because of all the textures in the flower petals, in the papery cover that dries up after the buds bloom, and in how the bloom attaches to the stem. This one is just post-card sized.
I’m showing at the Saratoga Rotary Artshow on Sunday, on the campus of West Valley College in Saratoga, CA. www.saratogarotary.org/artshow
