Recently I was commissioned by some friends of ours to do a cactus painting. They live in Southern California (having previously lived in New York City) and have really gotten into cacti. They wanted a large canvas painting and the creativity was left up to me for this one.
After mentally cycling through several ideas, I decided upon painting two cacti in a pot, with a flower growing out of the top of one of them. This, I thought, would symbolize them as a couple growing together.
The painting is done with acrylic, gouache and watercolor paints!
