I had to comment on this one; I watch your pieces all the time. This one is just so brilliant, the detail and contrast is very well done, the flowers just jump out at the viewer. Great job, I love seeing how much you've improved over the last year especially.

Thanks for the :+fav:, Valerie! Delighted you like it! :D
That's right, they are similar to bottle-brush flowers (we have them here as well), only the shape is different, and while the bottle-brush flowers hang down, these are "sitting up".

i had noticed that they seemed rounder than bottlebrush. i also wondered if the "call" in both their names means something like "spikey or brush-like" :)

This is lovely, Pat! You've really captured these flowers, but I also like the composition in this. I see you are very good with your dry brush technique...that's hard to do. I really love it! :love:
Well done! :) :wave:

Do you realize that you (or rather your dandelion paintings) were the inspiration behind this?
I kid you not! :lmao:
Well, no dandelions here, of course, but about 10 yards from my studio there's this small powderpuff tree.... which I've been passing 2 dozen times each day for the last six years without so much as a second thought. Until I saw your dandelion paintings....
So, thanks for this as well!
