Tara's Gerbera Daisy


Watercolor, 5 x 7

This is a painting I did sometime back but didn't get around to putting the finishing touches on it. I finally got in gear and finished it up! It's a gift to my son's fiancee, Tara - hence the title. She loves bright colors so I really went for some juicy reds and oranges on this one. Was rather fun to paint!

Still on activity restriction with the nerve/arm/neck thing (doc says nerves are slow to heal... sigh) but much better than I was. Does this mean I'm not as young as I used to be? Nah! Not me! :-)

Teresa- you did an awesome job on this! I feel your pain with the neck thing (arthritis) my hands get numb when I paint or type too long. Take it easy!

Claire M said...

This is absolutely gorgeous!! Your son's fiancee will be very lucky to receive this. It truly looks like a gift of love.

Glad to see you playing a bit with art toys! But, I wish you continued healing as well!

I'm glad you're able to paint again even if a bit restricted. This is hot!

Beautiful, beautiful! Perfect shades and highlights, rich color - your future DIL is gonna love it!

Between you and Sue, the blog world has too few posts any more! Hurry up and get all healed up so we can see more of your beautiful paintings!

Dear Teresa,
You've been doing a great work in art. Regarding health, take it easy. If your case has the potential to recover, lovely. Mine is permanent, but I walked again and swim 1.5km for rehabiliation, even though it took 6 yrs to come to this level. Don't lose heart. Step by step, you'll get well. Never give up, Teresa.
Best wishes, hugs, Sadami

Does this mean you're not as young as you used to be? Depends. How young were you?!!
