After painting the smaller composition of dandelions, I immediately wanted to try a bigger version, with more flowers and variation. So over two days I worked on this painting, fighting against time and the flowers because dandelions are constantly changing! I have learned that the life of one flower exists for about 48 hours from bud to puff.

This painting will also be framed in silver.

I truly love dandelions.

I think allowing myself to acknowledge this piece of information, is allowing myself to connect with my child-self, because as a kid I loved seeing the bright yellow flowers, yellow dots on a field of green. I also loved sitting in the grass and blowing dandelion puffs. And whenever an adult would see me doing this they would admonish me for spreading those "terrible" weeds, which my mind at the time could not see as being anything but wonderful.
