Cactus Monday

Todays cactus is one that has been portrayed before I just thought I would show it in a different way. This is the blossom of the Saguaro cactus, Carnegiea gigantea. Another common name for it is Sage of the Desert.

Hi Teri, Of course I painted from a photo since these cactus don't grow around here. The bee was actually in the picture. I thought it a nice touch too.

Thank you Julie. I don't sell my art.

Hi Beckie, Thanks so much for your encouragement.

Hello Studio lolo and welcome.

Hello Forever young. I am enjoying the Cactus Monday. It is fun being a Cacuteer.

That is so lovely. I especially like that it's from an unusual viewpoint.The way it just fills the space is exceptional too. Thanks for sharing!

Theresa
