This is an 11 x 14 inch still life oil painting of coneflower in a red vase. Right now, it is still in bloom in my yard along with cosmos and a few other things.
This is a 16 X 20 inch oil painting of Prarie Coneflower also known as Mexican Hat. These flowers volunteer like crazy! I always have an abundance and they easily take over if you are not careful.
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.
