Goodbye Summer....Farewell

I'm really going to miss the summer.....all the beautiful flowers and blooms that I love to paint.  "Daisy Field" is my farewell gift to summer.  I hope I have stockpiled enough images of the flowers I've encountered over the summer months to keep me busy once the cold winter days are in full force.  I'm sure by February I'll be craving paintings like these.

The fall does bring good things, although the cold is not one of them.  At the end of this month the Bryn Du Art Show in Granville, Ohio will take place.  Two of my paintings were accepted, however one of them has already sold.  I will at least have one painting on display at this show that will feature around 50 artists.  In addition, a few local artists in my town will be displaying and selling their art at the local fruit farm.  I hope to be one of them.  In the meantime, I'll be busy with brush in hand.

"Daisy Field" can be purchased at or you can email me at if you are interested in this painting or any of my other paintings.  Thanks again for viewing and sharing my blog with friends and family.


  1. It turned out to be a very lovely 3D art piece Gretchen. I love the detailed petals in the front and implied ones in the far back.

  2. Thank you Irina. I ended up glazing over some of the background to create the illusion of petals....I'm pretty happy with the end results.

  3. Comgrats on the show....I am so glad others are going to be able to see your beautiful work!

  4. I love anything like looks like a daisy and these are so lovely! :)
