Those sideways "daisies" are actually Chrysanthemums, but they sure look like daisies to me. (I just spent about an hour trying to get blogger to put the image in horizontally - does anyone know why it insists on showing it sideways?). My friend Natalie brought them to our painting group today, and I painted them on wet hot pressed paper with watercolor and Karan d'ache watercolor crayons. I usually work from photos, but I couldn't resist these colorful, cheerful cut flowers on a cold, gray, icy day. 11x15

Mickey - I know they were intended to go the other way (and that's how I looked at them at your house yesterday), but they look interesting this way too...sort of like someone picked them and just dropped them casually on a table. I like the way this one came out.

These and the marigolds are just wonderful.

Beautiful colors. You could use a program like Googles "Picasa" which is free to download. It has an option to flip a picture in any direction. Then upload it again.
It looks good anyway though.

They look beautiful both ways.
