Daisy Chopper

Artwork details: gouache on paper, 19.5 x 14.5 inches (50 x 37 cm), 2012.

This was a commissioned painting. The couple who requested it are very keen on bikes, and wanted a fairy picture. The pose that I came up with suggested the fairy should be holding something aloft in her hand. A spear would have been the obvious thing, so I avoided the obvious, and at first thought a spear-shaped plant might be appropriate. In the end I went with a daisy though: a plant that is quite un-spear-like but apt to pop up overnight in any good lawn. I like to think I may have stumbled upon the answer as to how they get there!
