Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan ‘Press On’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.
– Calvin Coolidge
This painting started out as a photograph of daisies in my garden. I started painting a layer of this photograph and then duplicated it and painted and repeated this process. Then I merged all of my layers together leaving the original layer as the most visible. The other layers and paint brushes create the texture you see.
I am really enjoying creating with painting tools and layering techniques.
