OIL, STILL LIFE, 8X10, 'THISTLE LOVE', Daily Painting

The poor, lonely thistle
So often overlooked
Worse yet, despised!
A weed...nonsense!

One person's weed is another's glorious bloom.  And for me this is a glorious bloom!

Picked from the fields of North Carolina.

Pretty as a rose!

Have a glorious day and look for roses everywhere.

I love this. The open flower is beautifully rendered and I'm just loving the visible textured strokes. If it looks this good in the photo, I can just imagine how it must look in person!

Happy holidays! :)
