Ah, the diversity of plants! This prickly pear cactus painting had to happen because the fruit of the prickly pear is so pretty--the rich color, the softly curving shape, and how delicate they look for such a tough plant as a cactus! The color of the finished painting is my favorite part, but that could be because I have a soft spot for purple.
