Something I've had in my mind since my first "bouquet" given to me by my first daughter long ago. Dandelions become less special to them as they grow older, but they'll always be kept special to me. A simple remembrance in acrylic background and colored pencil:

Any comments or advice to better this would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks for looking.

awwww this brought tears to my eyes remembering the times when my Son who is now 13 gave me dandelions...Now I'm finding it hard to grab hold of him just to hug him, he's developing his own life. This is really special..touching..Thankyou for sharing,very good work!

I have to admit I was teary eyed doing it.... I showed it to my mom and she also was remembering back to when I used to give her some. Let's hope dandelions in styrofoam cups never change and keep passing through the generations. I think it needs alittle work yet, but thanks for the compliment!

The dandelion heads seem to be channelling Van Gogh :)

A tiny bit more shading on the cup, and I think you'll be there - charming :)
