PATCH OF THORNY THISTLES
Are thistles weeds? Usually when artists paint a floral landscape or still life, they are looking for lush and exotic flowers, rich in color and searching for a dynamic composition. But instead, in this painting, we have a simple flower, sometimes pink or bluish purple sitting in brambles, yet appearing strangely attractive.
Maybe we are just looking in a mirror at ourselves.
