White Flowers - an Oil Painting of Daisies

"White Flowers"
12 x 12 x 3/4 inches,
Oil on Canvas
Available - email me for price.
White Daisies. In the movie "You've got Mail", Meg Ryan's character Kathleen likes Daisies.
There's a line in the movie - I had to look it up at imdb.com - in which she says: "Sometimes I wonder about my life. I lead a small life. Well, not small, but valuable. And sometimes I wonder, do I do it because I like it, or because I haven't been brave? So much of what I see reminds me of something I read in a book, when shouldn't it be the other way around? I don't really want an answer. I just want to send this cosmic question out into the void. So good night, dear void."

So here it is again, doing something that scares you...be valuable, be brave.
It's the cosmic question.
Happy Saturday to all and by the way - I love mail - let me know if you've been doing something different - it doesn't have to be scary.

Hi Judy - you've got mail! To say that I think these daisies are so incredibly beautiful. Such simple flowers, yet so gorgeous.

In the dark, who can help the one who is afraid of everything? Lately, everything I do scares me. Nothing is ever the same excpt for change. Your paintings inspire me every time I see them.
