The third of a series of the seven paintings in print, which has its own primary aura. Spent flowers are often overlooked to the point where they are discarded and yet each spent Michaelmas daisy changes into its own unique character so that its contorted shape becomes a visual discovery that develops into a seed head. This painting received a Silver-Gilt medal at the 2015 RHS London Botanical Art Show.
