12 x 9
Pastel on Art Spectrum
Sanded Paper Burnt Umber

The final painting in this series of cactus flowers, at least for today. Tomorrow is another day and things may change...and that's okay. The flowers in this painting represent the various stages from closed, to bud, to full bloom. They also represent the progression of stages, and as my painting process was a bit out of order, as is this image as well.

What is missing is the spent flower...maybe that's the final painting and representation of acceptance or completion. I'll have to ruminate on that for awhile.
