Original Oil Painting "Gerber Dressed in Blue" #10

"Gerber Dressed In Blue" 6"X8"  Original Oil on canvas panel.
 Gerber daisies are my favorite flower. I paired this one with a carnation and then set it in a mason jar, giving the compostion a  tri-color challenge of the reds, blues, and yellows in the white flower.  The key to painting anything is to develop a 
 keen eye: constantly make comparisons and paint what you see. The challenge here was to maintain unity in the painting. The flowers wilt, but the painting remains!
