My mum grew African daisies in her garden when I was young and I remember how I had always liked these flowers because they were so simple in appearance and yet looked sturdy and strong. Some months back, I bought about 8 stalks of flowers called Gerbera that I later found out were daisies. I also found out how difficult it was to paint cut flowers as the worry is not just with how to manage light and shadows, form and texture but having to deal with the passage of time and the effect it has on the dying flowers.
