I just posted the second and third daffodil paintings to the Daily Paintworks Challenge to raise funds for the displaced people of Japan.

Daffodil Blooms No 2

Daffodil Blooms No 3

A garden has always been a part of my home, wherever that home has been. Daffodils grew in my mother’s gardens and they have always grown in mine, a reminder of new beginnings. These are the second and third paintings in the Daffodil Series of three paintings that I whave posted on the Daily Paintworks site to help the people of Japan. The profit from the sale of this painting will be sent to the Japanese “Aid for Bed” – directly helping by providing shelter for the displaced.

All three paintings were painting en plein air in early April of 2009.  They are oil on wood panel.
