Painting #16 Baby Barrel Cactus
I painted this for Cactus Monday because it lives in front of our house and is just a baby barrel cactus about 1.5 inches in diameter. When I almost stepped on it I decided small is good for close observation and a painting.
The surrounding stones are also very small and I decided to de-emphasize them in the painting leaving just a hint so the cactus was the main focus.
Next year this baby will be twice the size.
