In the dead of a Vermont winter, I had an urge to paint something that reminded me of warmer weather. From the start of this painting until the end, a ladybug (or perhaps more than one) kept appearing on the painting as I was working on it. Even if I shooed it away, it found its way back within seconds. Basically, it walked on the painting until I was through. In the end, I decided that these black and red companions needed to play a role in this piece! I added them in combination with their beloved blooming daisy head.
The painting is accentuated in a medium brown wooden frame. Framed oil painting dimensions are 19 1/4” x 23”.
