Chimayo Cactus

The big skies of New Mexico provide incredible light and clarity to the landscape. Capturing the intense colors of this cactus proved to be a challenge, red is always so difficult to convey. I like to think this painting communicates to the viewer the stark contrast between the delicate beauty of the flower against the sharp thorny needles protruding in every direction. The cactus never ceases to captivate me. Thanks for viewing my blog.
