I love flowers. They are one of my favorite things about summer even if planting and keeping up a garden is a lot of work (and I will admit to being behind on my weeding). But I also must admit that I like weeds a lot, too. Maybe not all weeds, and I certainly don’t want them in my garden but I love walking out in the country and admiring the garden that nature has planted all by herself.
After finishing up my humorous thistle piece, “I Dunno They Weren’t Here Yesterday” I realized I wasn’t done with weeds yet. I made another, smaller thistle study, “Goldfinch Buffet” for the SAQA Benefit auction. Still not done, I made yet another thistle study. This one still needs a name. Any ideas?
Then onto “Just Dandy”.
And “Bumble Bee Buffet”: Clover and Indian Paintbrush
And there are still plenty of good looking weeds to explore, like milkweed pods, cat tails, chicory….
BTW, I’ve wrapped these pieces around stretcher bars and I really like the way they finished up.
