100 Paintings in 100 Days 'Inspirations from a Back Yard' Challenge

'Poof!' 01/100
Oil 6 x 8 on stretched canvas

With the sudden onset of very warm weather we are having
today, the dandelions are exploding into seed all over our
lawn. Thought this would be a great way to start my
100 paintings in 100 Days Challenge/Inspirations from
a Back Yard
, because I know many of you are most likely
seeing the same thing in your own back yard!

I have to say sitting on Day 01 of my challenge is a bit
intimidating when I think of how many other paintings there
are to do, but then that is exactly what makes it
fun too!

Thanks for following the challenge!!!!

Fantastic! You go girl!

You have painted a beautiful painting of a humble dandelion and made it into a work of art, wow! Yes they are all over my garden too, blooming away at the moment.

Wow, Claire! You've handled this so beautifully! Oddly enough, I just photographed this same 'gone to seed' dandelion a couple of weeks ago thinking its perfect roundness was so pretty. I don't know what I hadn't realized that this was how dandelions seed...(don't ask me what I thought this meant when they looked like this; I couldn't figure out how they went from sturdy flowers to ethereal balls of puff!). I love the colors you've captured in the little seed stems as they head toward the center. Such a pretty start to your challenge!
