Cactus Monday - Prickly Pear

I saw a prickly pear cactus in a barrel this summer. I tried to paint it. The sky got gooky on me but I like the cactus. Sometimes that watercolor does stuff I don't understand and I can't control.
Cactus Monday snuck up on me this week. I did manage to get this onto the computer. Happy Cactus Monday.

A wonderful barrel of cactus! As for the watercolor, I have great experience of it when it has a mind of its own :) You can wash out most of that red and I think it will soften it up nicely. But I love that barrel of happy cactus.

Hey...thanks for visiting my blog! I am still trying to see who all participates in cactus monday, so I am glad you stopped by. I think I will start a new set of links just to the cactus monday folks. I like your barrel of cactus, but that sky makes me think of the impending hurricanes in the Atlantic that I must keep watching... living in Palm Beach County, Fl!!! LOL. :)
