These Thistles became a quick study while waiting for my friend to finish up her plein air piece. Sat my self down in the dirt for a better view and ended up sitting on another - which I don't recommend.
This turned out somewhat light and pastel in color, which somehow doesn't really feel like me, but it's a nice airy little painting. I like the movement in my brushwork and the over all looseness. For being so pretty and delicate looking, these flowers are prickly little plants. Able to protect itself if you were to threaten it. Maybe not so different than many of us.
8x6 oil on Raymar hardboard panel
