Red Thistle (composition №83)

Prickly and inaccessible savage, choosing the most uncomfortable habitats, red Thistle combines incongruous-lifeless and dull leaves and stems with luxurious, blazing red cadmium flowers. Perhaps they serve as a reward for the eyes of a tired traveler who ventured into the wasteland for such a sight.

Linen canvas, gesso and acrylic paints. Coated with an archival-quality protective satin varnish. Mounted on a stretcher frame.
Painted with a plastic card and a palette knife.
Sides are painted.
