Twilight Daisy

Twilight Daisy
18x24 soft pastels on Art Spectrum Colorfix

On Hold
This painting is about soft summer dusk lighting. Additionally, the intention with this floral creation is to present the beauty of a flower in bloom. I emphasized the contrast between dark and light, used warm and cool hues to encourage the viewer around various focal areas. The beauty of the flowers reminds me of the beauty of people. Sometimes one should slow down enough to experience it. Although, once you have that beauty it creates a joy that lingers within one for quite some time.

I enjoy looking at this painting. The way the lighter values in the center near the upper right petals really sets this piece off for me. It mirrors where the light hits those petals and sets a good tone. Great painting.

This seems such a exciting painting - nature at it's larger than life state!

Thank you both for your comments. When an artist hears comment that seem to reflect the intention and emotion of their creation it is rewarding.
