Title: “Degas’ Tutus” / Acrylic on Canvas

This painting is of some large yellow marigolds from my pottery container garden.    While gardening one day, I noticed the design of the three marigolds and I liked the way the yellow of the flowers contrasted against the blue and green colors of the large ceramic pots.  The shape of the flowers and how they flared-out reminded me of the tutus worn by ballerinas in works by Degas.  (Painted 2014)
