This spiny cholla cactus boldly dares to blossom in richly colored, delicate petals of fushia, offering bursts of beauty in the extreme West Texas heat.
Cholla cactus is a definitive plant of the Chihuahuan Desert, and I include it in my paintings whenever it's appropriate.
This heavily layered and embossed colored pencil vignette is on acid-free paper, hardy as cactus.
