10x8" oil on canvas, SOLD
Every spring I wonder who decided that the dandelion is a pesky weed. I mean, they are really beautiful and grow without any encouragement. You can't say that about most flowers. My favorite part is the seed heads--what a great design! Each seed has it's own tiny parachute. So this painting is dedicated to all the little kids (and the big ones) who will help the Taraxacum Officinale in it's quest to cover the world with brilliant yellow flowers by blowing on it's fuzzy little head. And watching, in awe, as all those little parachutes make their way back to the earth! Go on, blow--you know you want to!
