Pastel on Canson Touch in Tobacco
These are some tiny little yellow cactus flowers from the Phoenix Desert Botanical Garden. This painting is quite a departure for me. I struggled with what to do with the background. I knew I wanted turquoise blue to be part of this composition, but how??? I finally got so frustrated that I scribbled some hatching or line pattern. From there it grew into more sunburst or magnetic patterns. I'm not sure how I feel about this quite yet, but I've learned that I don't judge my own work anymore. I just do what I feel and let you be the judge.
