Daisy Love in Summer by Maree  Clarkson

Currently unavailable for purchase

Watercolour on Bockingford 300gsm – 12″ × 8″
Daisies in my garden – Tarlton, Gauteng, South Africa


In the scented bud of the morning—O,
When the windy grass went rippling far,
I saw my dear one walking slow,
In the field where the daisies are.

We did not laugh and we did not speak
As we wandered happily to and fro;
I kissed my dear on either cheek,
In the bud of the morning—O.

A lark sang up from the breezy land,
A lark sang down from a cloud afar,
And she and I went hand in hand
In the field where the daisies are.
James Stephens

I am a watercolorist living on my little piece of African soil in Tarlton, Gauteng, South Africa. The inspiration for my art is the wonderfully rich variety of Fauna and Flora to be found throughout this beautiful country.

    By the way, my sister was here all last week for a visit and she loved the coffee painting. I gave her the directions you had written out, and I can’t wait to see what she comes up with.

  • That’s great Dot, do you think she’ll let you have some to show us…? would LOVE to see them…
