Cactus Flower

I already entered my psychedelic garden piece but went ahead and finished the cactus flower anyway.  It is painted with colored pencils, overlaid with sheer petals and has a very ethereal look in person.  It is hard to get the transparency look on film.  It was taken from a cactus in my garden with the shadows just right to give it the wonderful colors.

I like the tied threads on your cactus. Very realistic!

I really like this piece. It has so much texture and depth to it. The sheers are a very nice touch and I like the ragged edges.
