Very good Buda, the daisy definitely looked like a photo at first glance. Have you always been an artistic person? How did you learn?

Thank you Frank.
My mom said I was drawing from the age of three. I used to sit with her when she painted and I've been drawing, painting and more ever since.
I just enjoy being creative.

I am actually working on a childrens book now and illustrating it. It's about gardening of course!

The daisy is amazingly lifelike, and you've managed to capture the spirit of the columbine too. Lovely work, both of them.

I've started hollyhocks, coral reef poppies, basils (4 types), tomatoes, white canna, green asters, white marigolds, eucalyptus, baby cucumber, parsley, chocolate mint, amerboa, oregano, and blue fescue so far. I have other seeds that require direct sowing only, so those have to wait.

THat daisy - are you sure it is not a photo?? Only pulling your leg.

That is totally amazing - you are quite talented. I would love to see the rest of your garden as you paint it.

I love the way you captured light in the daisy, and the feeling of movement in the columbine, thanks for posting these!
