I'm going to call this my Snow Day project.
Yeah, we had a snow day. I know my friends in the North make fun of us for letting school out when there's an inch of white (almost) covering the ground. I do know that I wouldn't want to drive a bus filled with kids on icy roads, but come to think of it... I wouldn't want to drive a school bus... period...
I wonder how I'll feel next year when the schools have a snow day and it won't affect me... Hmmm...
Thanks to Lela at Paint and Draw Together for choosing such a lovely image for her Challenge #65 - Narcissus in a Vase. I love seeing all the pieces done by different artists. All exactly the same, yet each completely different.
As soon as I saw this one, I knew I wanted to paint it. I love daffodils, and spring is such a loooooooong time away!
Because I'm never sure, I Googled the difference between narcissus and daffodil and jonquil. They seem kind of interchangeable so I'm not sure it's worth remembering, but here's what I learned. Both of them fit in the genus of narcissus. The jonquils have tube-like leaves, while the daffodils have flat leaves. Also, jonquils have several in a bunch rather than one on a stem.
