A Year of Creating Dangerously, Day 90: Picking Dandelions


Picking Dandelions

“Picking Dandelions”, Ronald Kok, 2017, Oil pastels on paper

A simple post for today. One evening this week I took some time for my own art therapy and drew the picture above, based on a photo of my daughter from when she was four or five years old. I’ve always loved this photo of my little girl, picking dandelions while wearing a crown of them in her hair. Though I don’t think I depicted her well (I’ll definitely be revisiting this image), my goal was an impressionistic sense of the moment; sunshine, green grass, bright yellow flowers. It is a bright memory which always lightens my heart.
