Thistle Painting | Daily Painting | Small Oil Painting | Thistle and Meadow by Carol Schiff | 6x12x.75" Oil
It seems to me the beauty of the fields and meadows of the North Carolina mountain country is even more stunning than usual this summer. During my trips there, I walk the country roads each morning. Every day seems more spectacular than the day before. Since returning home, I have tried to capture the scenes on canvas.
The purple thistles sparkled against the golden fields. One morning, I picked a beautiful bouquet of wildflowers, some would all them weeds. The entire state seemed to be covered in daylilies, blooming wild on the sides of mountains and in roadside ditches.
