Thanksgiving Flowers

8" x 10" Oil on mounted canvas.

Flowers are a tough still life subject. Trust me, that's not just my opinion either. These were part of the bouquet our Thanksgiving guests brought us. I really liked the yellow and purple complements together (and there are actually more varieties in the full collection.) One of my particular struggles here is that I don't know the names to title my painting! :^) Sure, there are some daisies and little roses, but what are the others? I have a shamefully small knowledge here. My Grandmother who worked in the seed factory would know every one...sigh.
