Thoughts:   Leslie Elaine says: this is one of my favorite pieces and my best selling print! I made it for my dear friend Doreen. I knew she loves daisies and my collages so that is how it began. First I got out my nature calendars and magazines. I did the sunrays first, then the sun. For the lower background I did a base of blue and then cut out flowers to make it like a field of daisies. I finished with the two daisies in the middle and the lighter daisies in the foreground. I made sure to do some daisies in warm colors - red, orange and yellow - so it looks like some daisies reflect the sun and also to unify the piece. Daisies are so hopeful!
