Fresh Colorful Paintings of Still Life, Gardens and Figures

These are beautiful thistles that I found on a recent trip to the 2nd Street Market in Dayton. They were growing between stones in a very old railroad bridge embankment behind the market.Very persistant weeds. I keep a pair of plant nippers in the car for just such opportunities. The market is thriving this time of year with farmers bringing their produce and flowers into town. It is a great place to be on a Saturday morning.
This photo is actually part of a slightly larger painting that will eventually go on my website.
