This picture of a beautiful little golden mystery flower has long been a personal favorite.
That's why I've always been sorry that I couldn't identify the flower type. I spotted this growing wild at Ano Nuevo State Park during a visit to Northern California several years ago.
A friend believes it may be Grassyleaf Goldenaster which looks possible but is not native to that part of the country. I'm going with that identification for the moment because there were other non-native plants growing there, but I'd love for someone who has a definitive answer to identify my lovely little golden flower some day!
Until then it remains a simply beautiful moment in the sun saved from years ago.
Life is full of happy surprises. After just over a decade working in the 9 to 5 cube world, I threw caution to the wind to follow my dreams of being a full time visual artist. That was five years ago! Is it easy? No, but something truly worthwhile is rarely simple.
My body of work is wide ranging from photographic scenes of far away places, more near and dear locations, and more fanciful artwork. It's all crafted with a heartfelt love for finding the beauty in little captured moments. My artwork also hangs on walls near and far from private homes to businesses who have chosen to decorate with my art.
Whether you've purchased one piece or a house full or you simply admire and share with your friends, your patronage of my art is...
