Purple Coneflower Echinacea Oil Painting

This is an 11 X 14 oil painting of purple cone flower also known as echinacea.  I love echinacea.  It is such a pretty flower and it volunteers like crazy.  It requires little care and loves lots of sun.  It is one of my best growers along with holly hock and sunflowers.  I am not fond however of the prickly middles that poke me when it is time to cut them down at the end of the season.  I gave this one to my mom.
