There's a lot of Queen Anne's Lace along the road these days. I started photographing it as reference for this series of weed paintings and only then noticed that many of the flower heads have a single deep purple flower right in the center. Apparently there's some legend about a lace making contest among a queen's handmaids and a pricked finger and a drop of blood of course. But the thing that surprised and somewhat dismayed me is that I'd never noticed the purple flower before. I've seen these weeds forever and had simply never noticed.
Prints of the painting and the painting itself will appear in my Etsy shop sometime soon.
