Painting #66 - A Cacti of a Different Color


Let me explain how this painting evolved.
I wanted to do something different for Cactus Monday and thought I would a sketch a few cacti and paint them different colors.
After I did that I didn't like it so I put the rectangles in the background.
And still didn't like it.
I wondered if there was something I could do to save it, then I saw Laure's post about word design.  So I tried something similiar and like it better.
What I like is the strong graphic feel to it.  Still not what was in my mind but happy I didn't have to throw it out.
Great learning experience.

This is so much fun, Teri! It reminds me of a cactus "city!" Maybe Vegas!

Nice save, BTW!

This just goes to show we shouldn't give up right away. I like how it turned out -- the strong design quality and the cheerful colors.

Hey, great idea Laure. Vegas is fun.

Yes, I am really glad I tried to save it, taught me a lot.
