Texas Thistle

Texas Thistle - Some call these weeds but they are wonderful bee and butterfly food so I call them food. The thistle grows as a wildflower and can be found in the middle of many place where you find native flowers. Most thistle I have seen are a purple or pink color with prickles all over the plant including the flower, along with the stem and leave. This protects the plant from being eaten by the many different herbivores. I told someone once who had a most beautiful yard that I thought thistle were pretty and he came un-glued he said its a weed! Every since then I have looked at them as weeds, but still think they are pretty not to add that they are great for many insect especially bees and butterflies which numbers are twindling. Maybe we all need to plant some thistles so these wonderful pollenators can hang around. Photo © copyright by Bee Creek Photography - Tod Grubbs / Cynthia Hestand.

Canvas wrap

Canvas wraps are printed on white archival poly-cotton blend matte canvas. The canvas is wrapped on a 1.5" stretcher framed and finished with a durable black backing. The gallery wrap arrives at your doorstep ready to hang. After an order is submitted, the canvas usually arrives within 5-6 business days. While canvas wraps are more expensive, there is no need for matting and framing. After a fine art print is matted and framed, the cost is often equivalent or even slightly more than a canvas wrap.
