Funky Cactus

 
I have been working on this one for a couple of weeks; got it to the point where I can see if there is anything else I want to do before removing it from the painting board and matting it. I was in the mood to paint something with funky colors and chose this subject. I am trying to get my painting groove back after not painting very much for so long, I sure was more confidant in my painting before I took my "sabbatical" from it, a lot of my instincts have not come back yet. But, I am enjoying it and will keep on keepin' on with it.

Hi Susan,
I love the beautiful soft colors in this painting and the purple background. In my book, it is very successful. I would appear that you have never been away from the wet brush!!!

I do need to add more modeling of the shapes, but I like the colors, too!

Susan, This is so soft and beautiful. I really miss the desert. Would love to see it matted out and framed. Hope you guys are having a wonderful fall. We have been in Alaska since April and will head back down the end of this month.
