Pink Gerbera

Brrrr…it is 7 degrees outside and the temp is still dropping.

Had major difficulties photographing this painting and the above is the best I can do.  The background is actually darker and the gerbera daisy is a deep pink--not the red of the photograph.  But enjoyed doing this painting and wanted to share it.


  1. This is really beautiful! It's very cold here today too Susan... about the same temperature as where you are and raining in buckets! I have awful trouble photographing my paintings too... I think the dark backgrounds are always more difficult. But, this year I am planning a lighter and more colourful palette with some juicy brushstrokes too. Time for me to evolve from my pedantic tenancies I think! :0)

  2. We also had a very cold spell Susan! The beautiful colors on this wonderful piece certainly warm the soul and give my spirit a lift! Love the blue background! Makes the flowers pop off the surface. Always a joy to check out your great blog! Always know I am going to see some wonderful art! Stay warm and keep painting!
    Michael BRRRRR!
