Artist's Description

What do you see? A beautiful flower? Painful thorns? Meticulous geometrical precision or wild abandonment? An invitation to approach, or a warning to recede? Aggression or defence?

Or, all of the above? Another wild flower growing in abundance in Greek fields. I don’t know what they are called (in Greek I know them as Donkey-thorns) but I assume they are a kind of thistle. The stalks, leaves and flowers of the plant are all painfully spiky and thorny, but I am absolutely fascinated by the way they look and the visual contrast they create with other plants.
