The artist relates: “Dandelions Rejoicing” was a homework assignment from Sybil’s (Andrews’) Thursday art class. My original picture was around 3 feet. I had great fun using the edge of a pastel to create splashes of coloured energy vibrating from the dandelion. Some people see these flowers as a weed to poison and eliminate. I see them as golden flowers that really do appear to rejoice in the warmth of the spring sun."
