"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.
