"WHITE DAFFODILS by the FENCE", 11" x 14", Oil on Canvas, Framed (AVAILABLE)
White Daffodils by the Fence, 11" x 14", Oil on Canvas, Framed. I painted this oil over a period of 2 months, adding texture and depth to the white daffodils. I so enjoyed painting these white daffodils and have painted yellow daffodils by fences before. Something about the little cupped flowers which remind me of a woodsy setting out in nature somewhere. This was painted in my own impressionistic style, using quality artistic Gamblin oil paints. The frame that I put this in is just gorgeous and I hope you look at it closely. The photo was hard to get because of the glare on the damp oil paint, I decided to post it anyway in spite of that. I hope you enjoy this painting. Thank you.
I grew up in Pasadena, California, and have lived near the edge of the Arroyo my whole life. First with my parents and sister, and then later with my own family, with a son and three daughters. I had a happy and busy life. As the kids grew I also went back to school, earning my RN degree. I then worked at the hospital where I was born, as well as where I had my own children. I always had a desire to paint but never gave it much thought until one day...and the story goes from there. I became self taught until studying watercolor with, Nuttall, Wiegardt, Stoddard, and Swenson, some of the best. From there I went to Art Center College of Design, up on the hill, where I first learned of my passion to also paint in oil. I was signed up to take a workshop with, Charles Reid who is my very favorite artist in watercolor and oil. Since fall, I have been dealing with breast cancer so my desires to take certain classes have to go on the back burner for now. Just a bump in the road is all. I also have great admiration for the talent of Jeremy Lipking. I check out his work frequently and am in awe. He is really good..!!
