Blessed Thistle

This painting has a very special place in my heart and signified a turning point in my belief in my artistic ability.  Inspiration came very quickly but that was the easy part, I soon realised that this was no ordinary painting and I found myself dedicating every spare moment of my day and night to it. I have always been a spiritual person but I found that during the six weeks that it took to finish her, my connection to spirit increased vastly.
