Lone Bloom



6 x 8 oil on canvas

Only one yellow bloom remains on our cactus outside. I liked the play of the shadows and the side lighting. This is only the second time I have painted cactus.

Very nice with beautiful colors. I like the abstract quality.

Thank you, Linda. I was squinting, trying to do just that - make abstract forms when I could. That sun kept changing what I was seeing, you know how that goes!

Awwwww, thank you precious Madeline. :D

Well, quite honestly I knew right away what the top one was and I have to tell you that I love it! The bottom one too is gorgeous. My pieces have a face only a mother can love. Good thing I'm a mother (though admittedly I'm hard pushed to love everything that comes out of this studio).
