She swayed in the breeze in the garden that morning, flaunting her sunny disposition to and fro.  She was more radiant than any around her, in spite of those purple, pouty lips. 

This dahlia was my focus for about a 24-hour period, during which time I thought of nothing but sunny, uplifting thoughts. It's amazing what comes of such a mindset.

  1. WOW! This one is so beautiful. Love the colors so much.

  2. Thank you Jana. Seeing and placing the colors AND values accurately made her glow. I wish I had more multicolored flowers like this as reference material. She was a joy to paint.
