Late summer thistles

This large oil on canvas was painted in 1976, part of a series, depicting the late summer wild flowers that bloomed in the fields surrounding our home just outside of West Chester, Pennsylvania. Something about the majesty of the purple thistle has always attracted and intrigued me.
