Agave by Brian Hindson

 A colorful painting with an agave plant in the center of the canvas. The agave is large and green and beginning to sprout flowers at the top of the plant. Behind the agave in the background is a barbed-wire fence and a vast, deep blue sky. The brushstrokes give the ground and sky in the painting a swirling texture.

Artist statement: I’d never seen an agave plant and there are some huge ones hear at Big Spring. Once in thier life it shoots up flowers to bloom and attract bees and birds. It reached 15 feet tall, higher than the fences. It flowered and then it died. It escaped. Goal accomplished. Rest in Peace Bandido!!!!
