Cactus Monday - 07-20-09

This cactus has the longest name. I am not going to type it out but I did like the blooms and tried to capture them with watercolors. Ahemmm... sometimes things just don't work out as you see them in your mind. Anyway...Happy Cactus Monday to all the Cactuteers.

Hi Lisa, I agree with Messyfish.
The blooms are so bold and attractive. Very neat and thoughtful rendering.
Making the illustration stands out and says "Happy Cactus Monday!"
I am on this mood now, hope the same to you:)
