Because I live in Arizona, USA, I live in the desert and with that comes natural beauty of the Cactus in the Spring.
I felt obligated to give these beautiful plants my full attention and paint some of them especially if I intend to join and be juried for our local Studio Tour.
I am not sure what this cactus name is, but I have one in my front yard and will do a little research. Edited: This is possibly called “The Hedgehog Cactus Flower” in bloom.
This is the start of this beautiful bloom…
