Product Story

Study for Thistle Head framed original thistle watercolor painting. This study features a list B species, which is invasive but has varying range and density within Colorado.

Catto is a wildflower enthusiast, and thistle and salsify grow throughout the hills behind her house. She likes focusing on flower details by cropping them and lending them an air of abstraction. These macro compositions make her flower portraits less precious and provide an alternative view to these plants. Beauty is everywhere; even in noxious weeds.


Original watercolor on watercolor paper, framed.
