Cactus Dahlia


6.5 x 7 inches, watercolor, 2009.

I have a couple of these cactus dahlia plants - I love the spiky blooms, and the plants usually flower abundently. I chose to concentrate on a single flower for this painting to emphasise the petal shapes and colours.

Awesome.

This appears 3d! Just jumps off of the page!

You are indeed very gifted.
