Daffodils are one of the happiest of flowers I think. They pop up up in early spring, sometimes even through the snow with the promise of warmer temperatures. If it weren’t for daffodils and some of the other early bloomers like crocus and the forsythia bush, I might lose my mind in a winter funk.
I prefer summer temperatures, but I won’t say that I hate winter. It has a beauty all it’s own. Painting winter trees is a favorite subject of mine, as much as painting the beautiful flowers is. We need to have the Winter so our gardening souls will never take advantage of Spring, Summer and Fall. At least that’s how I feel.
This 8″x10″ acrylic painting was painted with the first sight of my daffodils in my garden. I was walking along my greenhouse one warm late winter day and saw these beauties. I named them Early Girls, because they had bloomed earlier than the others due to the micro-climate they had right next to my south facing greenhouse.
Early Girls comes as a gallery wrapped canvas that is 5/8″ deep and painted on the sides. You do not need to frame the painting, however a simple cradle frame always adds a little something extra. Please note, this painting is sold without a frame.

Check out my Painting Offer page. It’s my take on an art auction. I put up a painting quarterly and ask for bids. It’s fun and gives you a chance at buying a piece of art far below the retail value.
