daisies and a challenge

daisyJAR_700.jpg

excuse the horrible quality of this pic, but the weather has been so gloomy and i am just too excited about this painting not to post it. daisies really are one of my favorite flowers - not much of a rose girl myself. 

when i was in asheville, i scored some vintage wallpaper and this is my first creation using some of it as a backdrop. i love how it adds so much depth to the overall piece - you can imagine the mason jar sitting on a table in a vintage kitchen.

this painting was created as a step in my final submission for the Lilla Rogers "Make Art That Sells" challenge. who knows, maybe it will be my winning masterpiece!!!
