Jimson Weed


Size 12 x 12 in | 2021 | oil on canvas Categories , , , , ,

The sandy soils along the Sacramento River are home to abundant jimson weed. The white/purple glow of the flowers, their radical shape shifting from bud to droop, the jagged leaves, and the mystery of their psychedelic properties, I see how Georgia O’Keefe fell hard for this flower. While this petite painting is not done in O’Keefe’s modernist style, I thought of her with each post-impressionist brushstroke.

This painting arrives ready to hang on a 1½-inch wrapped canvas with hand-painted edge.
