The Desert Has Started To Bloom

There is a cactus that I see every morning on my walk. It is the first one I saw blooming this spring. The cactus itself spreads on the ground and gets covered with these orange beauties. Sorry I don't know the name of it.

I painted this on handmade paper which is sure not the best for watercolor but very fun to do.


  1. Your watercolours are beautiful. I also paint watercolours,
    Thanks for sharing your paintings with us!

  2. VERY vivid blooming! Love this. I think the paper lends a good texture to the cactus (which always has PLENTY of tenure...)

  3. Thanks Carol. Love working on that handmade paper.


We'd love to hear from you, your questions, comments, observations! Please feel free to comment, feedback is important to us.
