I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do with this once I painted in the sky and the grass, but then the idea of thistles came into my head. I like the way the little sneaky bubbles in the grass echo the centers on the flowers, and of course these are the sort of thistles that stare at you. But don’t worry, I’m sure they’re thinking totally harmless flower-thoughts while they do. They’re not thinking about how they outnumber you at all.
Thistledown, 8″x4″ watercolor on paper, $169 with free shipping.
I slipped the piece into an 8″x10″ frame so you could get a sense of the scale, and of course I’d be happy to more permanently frame it for you for a small additional fee. Just drop me a line!
