There's such an ethereal quality to this ... one would anticipate fairies lurk in that field, Jane.

I'm really into wild flowers - it's almost possible to write a poem using their names alone.

Ox-eye daisy - I wait to see what you may do with it, although it works for me as it is.

Jane, I want to paint like you when (if) I grow up!!!

Watercolorist ha detto...

Jane, I always admire the constraint you use when painting. You know when to stop before giving too much detail, yet we can see clearly the subject. That gives your watercolors such a lovely soft quality.

Jane - your style is so beautifully free. Any tips for someone tied to precision with a longing to break free?

Leave it be. The allusiveness of the flower is poetic--speaks volumes--no more needs to be said to make the beauty of this flower clearer.
