Wild Parsnip

The simplest things can sometimes overwhelm me with their beauty. Like this wild parsnip standing six feet tall, the upper part silhouetted against an orange sunset, the lower part glow-boosted with color from magic hour. I used lush brushwork to accentuate the yellow blossoms and blue stalks of this “extraordinary ordinary weed” glowing in the evening light. 

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