Texas Thistles

Texas Thistles
11X14 and 8X8

Thistles are one of my favorite things to paint, I'm not sure if it's because they are purple or because they have such an unpredictable tendency to grow just about anywhere. These were fun to paint and were inspired by photos Carlos and I took during our visit to San Diego this year. You can see these on display during my show this month at the Flower Mound Performing Arts Theater in Flower Mound, Texas.
