Yellow Prickly Pear
In this painting from my series of cactus paintings I wanted to capture the delicate petals of the yellow prickly pear cactus. The intense center of the flower seemed to be on fire with the gradual step from yellow to orange to red. It reminds me of a flame! The double flower of this particular study was intriguing and unusual so much to I knew it would be a painting. Thanks for viewing my blog.
