The idea for this painting came from a design template of spokes and gears. The shapes reminded me of daisies, (a flower that is a mainstay in my garden). I thought about how as kids we'd weave the stems together creating a chain that could be worn as a bracelet or as in Victorian times a crown for the May Day celebration each spring. A title came to mind and the idea for this painting was formed.

Using watercolour and acrylics, I chose colors that are traditional and sophisticated and layered them to develop an aged patina similar to that of vintage, iron and metal garden wall art. I added pearl clusters to the center of each daisy giving them elegance and style. Daisies are a simple yet sophisticated flower that grows abundantly in the garden. They convey both cheerfulness and comfort.
