Cactus Flowers

"Where the Bees Go II", acrylic on canvas, 48"h x 12" w x 1 1/2" d

This is another painting that was inspired by a cactus that grows in my yard.  I love the flowers.  It was happy with it's environment and spent every spring bringing us pleasure. This cactus grew and bloomed. And then grew and grew more, soon we were having to trim it back and then it was too much for the yard and we had to take it all out.  However, I had years of painting, photographing  and studying the flowers that grew. I watched the bees and the birds make a living off that plant.  And, as far as that goes, isn't that what I was doing as well?

When I have this painting out at shows I find that the bees and butterflies are drawn to the color as if the flowers were the real deal.

Monitor settings may make a difference in the colors and values you see.  I've adjusted these photos to look as close to the originals as possible, but I cannot see what is on your monitor.  There is more information on my FAQ page about monitor settings.
