Daffodils For June

"Daffodils for June"
6" x 6"
(watercolor on aquabord)

For many years in a row, my friend June would go out and about in her town and plant daffodil bulbs in the fall so that in the spring people would be greeted by the happy blooms sprouting up all over the sides of the country roads. "It just puts people in a good mood," she'd say. And June loves to be put "in a good mood" . . . but what's even better, is it doesn't take much to get her there. She'll often call me up and say something like "hey Kara . . . I just saw a beautiful, old-fashioned phone booth for sale on the side of the road on the way back from NH and it just put me in a good mood!")

Anyway . . . June has a lovely little cookie shop and is putting together some Easter baskets and wanted a daffodil painting that could be made into a little gift tag, hence "Daffodils for June" was born. Thank you for visiting and have a lovely day!  

P.S. - I can't wait to see June's daffodils this year . . . they've multiplied over the years and it really is a wonderful treat!


  1. C'est vraiment un très joli billet... Bientôt chez nous les premières jonquilles vont sortir et ce sera le starter du printemps.
    J'aime beaucoup la lumière qui inonde votre peinture.
    Un très beau travail.
    Gros bisous

  3. Hi Kara, I copied your email address but the article on CHS came back. Has your email changed?

  4. Hi Kara -
    Thanks for the kind comment on my blog - and the link on yours. :) I remember noticing your art when I first joined DPW, and since then I've looked forward to every new piece! Love your style, your subject matter -- and your compositions are the best! Oh, and the 'little people' - so great. It's very nice to 'meet' you - can't wait to see what you do next! Good luck!
