Midday sunlight strikes the translucent petals of this yellow-throated daylily setting it ablaze with color. Had I not been squatting close to the ground to reach for a weed, I would have missed this particular view! Sometimes, the most potent visual thrills occur when I am most grounded to the earth.
This petite 6" x 6" painting rests on a clear acrylic easel that displays well on any mantel, shelf, counter, alcove or desk. These make for wonderful gifts for those who either garden, wish they did, or even prefer to bring the joy of garden blooms indoors for every season.
One of a series of award-winning oil paintings on garden blooms by Pat Cross.
