Artist Statement: Two sisters sitting in a field of irises, long stems wave sensuously in the spring breeze.
In amongst the lush crop of irises grow just a few of the precious daisies they have been searching for to make their "daisy chains".
The young sister seeks instruction from the older expert on how to do the delicate weaving of the chain and hangs on to every word from the older expert, face tight in concentration, determined to make the best ever daisy chain. - John Maitland.
Medium: Acrylic/Oil on canvas
