Thistle Painting, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, SOLD

This small oil painting is a tribute to thistles. The lowly thistle, thought to be a weed, in my eyes, a brilliant floral beauty.


 I photographed this thistle while taking a summer walk in the valley. Armed with my image, I painted it in oil, with lots of texture to suggest the spikey flower. Some of the texture comes from my use of the palette knife, and some of it was applied direct to the canvas. The sides of the canvas are finished, allowing it to be hung with or without a frame.

This is a picture of me, doing my favorite thing!

Thank you for viewing my art today.

This is so precious, Carol. The pretty pink fluffiness would look adorable in a little girl's room. Wishing you a happy Thanksgiving.
