Wildflower Meadow Painting

'Ladybug Meadow' 8x10 pastel
I am happy to be back to a wildflower painting. This painting will be the start of a new series for me and I am so excited about the possibilities! On my trip to South Carolina I had a wonderful conversation with one of the other artists who happens to be a very respected paper artist and the conversation sparked the idea for the series. I wanted to find a way to have fun with my wildflowers and make them fun for the viewer as well. So from now on, in every wildflower painting there will be some hint of the creatures that live amongst the flowers. Sometimes they will be very obvious but sometimes they will be hidden. I am planning on having my titles provide clues on what to look for. Today's painting is a meadow of daisies on Nantucket Island. There are two creatures hiding in the grasses. Can you find them? You can click on the painting to see a larger view. That is also the best way to see my underpainting which was an oil paint wash.
I would like to wish all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving. Thank you for allowing me to share my work with you. I appreciate it so much!
