When we were children, my brother and I memorized poems. "I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud" (sometimes known as The Daffodils) by William Wordsworth was a favorite of mine, and inspired this painting. Daffodils are so cheery, and yellow always makes me happy! When I renovated my studio recently, I had a warm yellow floor installed.
A little bit of the poem:
I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.
