"Cheyenne Spirit Echinacea (Coneflower)", unframed palette knife oil painting

This is a simple painting -- there are a number of colors in the petals of this particular type of coneflower (Latin name:  echinacea) and I wanted the focus to be on the flower itself.  You might know of this plant for its alleged herbal effects, an immune system booster, used for centuries in naturopathy  It also grows well where we live and, I believe, this may be a hybrid of the traditional purple flower that is so well known.  There is a bit more color here, with more reds and oranges merging into the long petals.
