Daisy, 8x8

"Daisy", 8x8", Pastel on sanded paper

On a weekly basis, my daughter takes flute lessons from a very talented flutist, Phyllis Louke. Phyllis has been very instrumental (no puns here) in my daughter's progress as a musician; guiding her, challenging her, believing in her,and supporting her along her journey. And every week, while I wait for her lesson, in Phyllis's living room sits a sweet, long haired dachshund who has a very demure personality. This is Daisy. And this painting is my gift for Phyllis and for all my gratitude for her work with my daughter. Thank you Phyllis!

Thanks all of you for your warm comments on Daisy!
I'm really happy with it too which makes for a great day!

Phyllis, she is getting framed and will bring her, hopefully, to the next lesson. I'm glad you like her!
