Artist's Description

This gorgeous patch of wild daisies were growing along the shoreline at the boyscout camp. It’s just a wonderful reminder that life is here for the taking and we can hold these memories forever in our minds or better yet, capture them and create works of art for all to see. I prefer the latter.

The Asteraceae or Compositae, also referred to as the aster, daisy, or sunflower family, is the largest family of vascular plants.4 The family has more than 22,750 currently accepted species, spread across 1620 genera, and 12 subfamilies.45 The largest genera are Senecio (1,500 species), Vernonia (1,000 species), Cousinia (600 species) and Centaurea (600 species).

Most members of the Asteraceae are herbaceous, but a significant number are also shrubs, vines and trees. The family is distributed throughout the world, and is most common in the arid and semi-arid regions of subtropical and lower temperate latitudes.6

Many economically important products come from composites, including cooking oils, lettuce, sunflower seeds, artichokes, sweetening agents, and teas. Several genera are also very popular with the horticultural community, these include marigolds, chrysanthemums, dahlias, zinnias, and heleniums.
