Previously done for the 2012 CBS Sun Art library, this little dahlia sun sits smiling with eyes closed. Resting, no doubt. This is done on an 8x8 stretched canvas, with 1-1/2 inch gallery wrapped sides. And it is still available through my DPW gallery/auction.
I do love dahlia's, and I am amazed that they sit quietly in my basement, sound asleep, through out the winter. Very soon, I will start to see signs of growth again & by April I will be putting them out in the sun for warmth & light. They will grow all summer, as they do every year, and flower to give me their show of color. Then, in the fall, they go back dormant again - and I put them down in the basement where they sleep throughout the winter.
I have had the same 2 pots of dahlia's cycling for the past 5 or 6 years! Love them!
