Art: Summer's End ~ Black-eyed Susans by Artist Patricia  Lee Christensen
These happy flowers are a treat to see as they herald the beginning of Autumn. These Black-eyed Susans welcome visitors to our home at the front corner of our lawn.

A root wash or poultice from the Black-eyed Susan has been used by the Ojibwa and other Native people to cure sores, snake bites and swelling. It is related to Echinacea and in the Aster / Daisy family.

The finest quality pastels and archival sanded paper were used to produce this art. I have depicted the afternoon sun washing across the flowers. Pastel has a unique ability in catching the light when the painting is displayed!
