Fiery Blooms 2

FieryBlooms2

Among the desert flowers Prickly Pear blooms remain a favorite, specially the Santa Rita variety with purple green pads and brilliant yellow flowers. In sharing this with a wonderful friend, Pat Lown (such a talented jeweler), shared that she had some that bloomed red! Now this I had not seen before, I knew I had to come back and experience them in all their glory. She called a couple weeks ago that it was time and off I went. WOW, such beauty, no wonder red and green are complementary colors and clearly by divine design.

Don’t flowers just make you want to smile? They make me smile and want to slow down and appreciate every nuance. Such a gift this was, I couldn’t wait to start painting. I started with two mini’s and then a larger painting, Joyful. Look at them from all angles next time, you never know what you might see, what most catches your eye when you change your perspective…
