This is a triptych (artwork divided into 3 sections) painted for my 9th grandchild! The flower is one of her mother’s favorites. I did not really consider just how MANY petals were involved when I began. This painting gave me a lot of trouble because it seemed that every shadow was a different shade. However, with God’s help it turned out fine and I hope that when Emma is older she can find her name hidden in the painting!

Barbara, I absolutely love your painting A Dahlia For Emma. The colors are perfect. The 3 pieces are unique. Perfect. Congratulations.
Thank you for your kind words! It was probably the most challenging painting I have EVER done – but so happy to be able to give it to this new little one!
