Daisy Beckett

If you've been following my '30 in 30' journey this month (and I hope you have!) you know that Daisy is one of my three subjects. Painting her has had it's ups and downs but has definitely been a great learning experience.
The last painting I did of her - 'Miss Daisy' - is my favorite so far, so I was apprehensive to paint her again today. But keeping with the spirit of the 30 in 30 challenge I went ahead.
Now the story would have a great ending if this one turned out even better... it did not. But that's ok. I will surely try again. And again.

And this is how the title of the painting came about - I was reminded of a quote by Samuel Beckett:

"Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better."

"Daisy Beckett"
Oil on panel, 6" by 6"
USD 65 (shipping included)

This is painting Nr 29 in the "30 in 30" challenge, the paintings are also posted on my Facebook Artist Page Regula Scheifele Fine Art - I'd love to have you follow me on Facebook or subscribe to my blog!


  1. I love this post for a lot of reasons especially about it being a learning experience. I can relate to you not wanting to paint Miss Daisy again because the last one was so perfect. I felt the same way this week about my artwork...but it serves to make me try harder and do better. Love this little pup and I have loved seeing your artwork all month! What a great accomplishment especially because you have a full time job! I cant believe all you got done!

  2. Congratulations, Regula!! 30 in 30 is quite a challenge and you did fantastic and it's been really fun seeing your work! Hats off!!

  3. Miss Daisy is adorable!! I have enjoyed your legos' and other toy's as well..Congratulations:)
