Silent Night

My sister and her husband bought a farm in West Virginia and asked me to paint them something that they could use for their Christmas cards this year. I hope this fills the bill.

Prayer of St. Francis

I know. It's a thistle. But I listened to that song, Prayer of St. Francis, the whole time that I painted this watercolor. It was very relaxing and helped me to get lost in the effort. When I was in Oklahoma, I saw these thistles growing by the side of the road and I was absolutely mesmerized by them. In the morning light they seemed so irridescent and I was experiencing that light quality of the west that everyone talks about. I really did see all these colors shimmering and changing as I shifted my gaze around the plant.
