Artist's Description

The inspiration for this painting was Thomas Jefferson’s farm journal which referenced farming tasks with the cycles of the “puccoon”. The puccoon as it is known to many older Virginians is the bloodroot, a common wildflower of the rich woodlands. It is often encountered in early spring blooming amid unmelted patches of the last snow with the cupped praying hands of its unfurled leaves protecting its delicate flower.
