Virtual Paintout is in Santa Fe this month. I had a lot going on and just barely had time to do one this month. There's a lot right about this one. The dry brush on the road and the reflections in the windshields are just right. The figures are all good except for the center figure's feet. I should have just left them out completely.
Many people have seen the movie Driving Miss Daisy. If you haven't, you should. I think I've mentioned before that I often drive my wife, mother-in-law, mother, and two sisters - or any combination - around shopping on weekends. My wife has always liked for me to do the driving; I have a good sense of direction and usually remember how to get back to places we've only visited once. For years I have likened that to Driving Miss Daisy and over the years I've gathered more and more Daisies to drive around. That's where I got the title for this piece. I drove the Daisies to Blowing Rock, NC a few weeks back and got a shot of them at this little shop. I took the liberty of changing the flowers outside to a loose semblance of daisies.
