Spent Daffodils, graphite and colored pencils on watercolor paper, Photoshop.
It’s almost the end of daffodil season. Our family planted dozens of daffodil bulbs on our hillside on Orcas Island a few years ago, and last year my wife planted dozens and dozens more. Now in the spring the fields are dotted with bright yellow, and it’s dazzling.
They’re still eye-catching—even beautiful—as they wither and become bedraggled, ghostlike and faded.
