The daisy usually has white petals and a yellow centre, but can also be pink or purple in petal colour. The symbolic meaning for daisies is innocence, purity and new beginnings.
The painting of the free form daisy on the left is fairly recent from my series of small paintings where I was trying to capture the essence of the flower in just a few brush strokes. The painting in the middle - Daisy Straw Flowers - is about ten years old and I really like the multi-coloured and bright colour composition. It really has a Spring / Summer feel to it. The painting on the right - African Daisy - is one of my earliest paintings and one of the first paintings to be done in a macro close focus style.
Below is an oil painting by Georgia O'Keeffe of Pink Daisy with Iris 1927. I quite like the pink and grey pastel colour scheme.
