Daisy of a House


Daisy of a House came about while sketching this old home outside of my town. The poor old place is falling in and I was going to give it some dignity somehow. Out of the corner of my eye the wind was waving something. I turned and down in the ditch were these wonderful daisies. It was a bouquet from heaven. Walking to the ditch and taking that angle, my new found friends and I proceeded to paint. This is a watercolor and ink with wild daisies. Nature will always answer the call if you are listening.........God bless HIS creation everyday. Ricky

  5. Wow - what a great job on this house! The color scheme is very effective, too. I also love the contrast of loose wahses with the tighter, more detailed parts.

  6. Poor house, it must have been something in its day.
    I love how daisies pop up any ole place. They never care if things are passed their prime!
