IRONWEED 6"X6" OIL ON CANVAS/ON HOLD
This is a weed that I admire every year and always plan to paint but never seem to do it. My new habit of keeping plant nippers and gloves in my car has payed off. Now I just stop my car when I see a worthy weed and bring it into the studio, bugs and all. This beautiful weed grows over 7' tall and got its name for the toughness of the stem. They start blooming in August and last until October.
