This gerbera daisy was a gift for my recuperation. I have a great indoor spot for it and it just keeps on producing lovely blooms. I have been really struggling physically after my surgery and I finally feel like I am starting to gain strength. This painting reflects the joy I am feeling about that possibility. I feel so grateful to be able to paint, and to have the ability to see, feel, smell, breathe and soon, walk. It is so easy to take those things for granted. The greens in this image appear much more intense and uniform than they are in the painting, and the background is a variety of darks (not just black).
