Going for It
Since I started writing this blog I have been looking at so many paintings – artists who blog always show something new and pretty they have come up with lately. No doubt I am jealous! So… it was time to do something about it.
I must admit I do paint a bit. Sometimes. Really not often. I’m definitely not a professional, so an empty canvas always scares me… Lots of “what if?” questions don’t leave me until that last brush stroke. Anyway…
This time I had a perfect subject – bright yellow daffodils.
I can never resist these flowers, no wonder in classical Persian literature, the narcissus or the daffodil is a symbol of beautiful eyes. Well, it’s also said that this flower is perceived in the West as a symbol of vanity (I’m not sure why) and in the East as a symbol of wealth and good fortune, yet for me it’s a symbol of spring and Easter.
Here’s the “masterpiece” ready for your judgement.
And I’m leaving you with a few verses:
I wandered lonely as a Cloud
That floats on high o’er Vales and Hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd
A host of dancing Daffodils;
Along the Lake, beneath the trees,
Ten thousand dancing in the breeze.
From the poem “I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud” by William Wordsworth.
