More Daffodils!

 "Daffodil: Lion's Mane" -- oil on canvas 6x6"

"Narcissus: Pheasant's Eye" -- oil on canvas 6x6"

These were the last 2 daffodils (narcissus?) that I was able to paint before the heat kind of "fried" everything here.  I admit it: I stole the Lion's Mane from the neighbor's lawn.  They were still in California and I figured they wouldn't mind.  I had grown these down at my old house in Farmington Hills, but had problems with them.  The blossoms were so huge and full, they were top-heavy and always fell face-down.  Better to stick with smaller, more simple varieties!

The little pheasant's eye grows in a clump right next to my studio.  It has a very sweet scent.
