Euryops in Votive Vase

4"x6" oil on raymar panel. Unless you know what a euryops is, this painting looks like a big yellow flower in a normal drinking glass. The co-opted vase is actually a votive candle holder measuring only about 2-1/2" tall – basically, a wide shot glass. The little euryops flower, or African daisy as some people call it, is from a couple of bushes that won't stop blooming, no matter how much a hack at them. The painting employs an obvious abuse of complementary colors - I hope you don't mind.
