Fireworks on a Barrel

Happy New Year! Another trip around the sun and on goes the circle and patterns of life. Nature's beautiful patterns are one of the reasons I'm drawn to nature (HA! no pun intended!) 

I've been wanting to do this Barrel Cactus for quite some time, just never felt quite up to it. It's a bit of a complicated image. But, it's time to tackle those things I fear. That may be my motto for the year. It reminds me of a quote attributed to Eleanor Roosevelt - "You must do the things you think you cannot do". Yes, that will be this year's goal.

Here's some progress shots on these fireworks....
