Sunflower Daisy Confetti is a new study as I work on a larger painting of the same arrangement in the studio today. I received a few notes from you indicating how much you like seeing "how the sausage is made" and the flower setups, so wanted to share with you a bit of the bigger picture. I felt a bit like the lotto winner when I found fresh daisies and two kinds of sunflowers at the local market today. I couldn't wait to get them back to the studio and get ready for a big, colorful, splashy painting!

The beautiful linen napkins that are under the setup came from a store in New Hampshire when I was visiting my friend Sharon a few years ago. I am always on the lookout for gorgeous linens and napkins to use as backdrops or settings. The napkin on the left, though, came from Pottery Barn. You're probably admiring that red gerbera daisy on the right, the one that stretches out as if gazing down upon the scene, aren't you? Yes, I love that flower, too! Although it does look like it wants to escape. The grass is always greener and all that good stuff.... Stay tuned to see this setup become a larger painting in the next day or two.

A little study for a
bigger painting which
will be coming right up!

Here's how the sausage is made...

Beautiful painting, Nancy! They always are. But I must say your studio itself looks like such a pretty room, a place to enjoy a good book, a glass of wine, the Pug family, and your wonderful talent.

Thanks Bohemian, I love my studio, lots of room to move around and hang art! I probably should have explained I used to have a professional stand for my setups, but it was so heavy and unwieldy I tossed it! I like small and lightweight...
