"Bachelor Button"

I can't see painting big bouquets of flowers, but I'm real fond of certain flowers- bachelor buttons, poppies, sunflower and tulips to name a few. Oh yeah- and dandelions. Not in my yard, necessarily, but they really are perky little flowers. These are dandelions featured alongside the bachelor button. This is one of my few "pale pallette" paintings thus far. I'm usually drawn to stronger contrast, but I like the subtle and ethereal quality of this painting.
