"Sand Dune Daisies"

"Sand Dune Daisies" was painted from my time at our NPS Camp Casey paintout last summer. I've taken artistic license to create a sense of place that reminds me of our trips to the ocean each summer as a child. The challenge here was to get the horizonal feel of the daisies among the tall grasses without them being too overbearing. I like the composition - which I changed from what was actually there. I like the whispy feel of this piece and the suggestion of lavender in the foreground.
