Smiles and Daisies and Meet the Model

Smiles and Daisies is drying on the easel as I peruse the interesting classes being offered in Fredericksburg this winter. Shall I paint pet portraits? Learn to paint out of doors in frigid temps? Pay a model fee - wait, a model fee?? This is why I love flowers. They don't wiggle. They don't have to remove piercings before each sitting. And these little daisies were $2.50 a bundle at the Piggley Wiggley this afternoon. Give them a little water and they're happy. One of them even laid next to the paint, reclining beautifully upon command and sitting perfectly still for hours. I do wish, though, they lasted all winter!
