Love That Prickly Pear

Pastel

11 x 14

This was my first plein air painting and what a struggle it was!  We were in the hill country west of Austin and the weather was cold, which is not the norm for Texas.  I saw this cactus in the shape of a heart and it was in a sunny place out of the wind which was perfect for me since I’m a wimp when it comes to cold weather.  The colors in the cactus and the grasses attracted me to use this as a painting subject.
