Here are my prickly pears. I have added several thorns. I am waiting for the dark green to dry before I do anymore. Some of the thorns come out of the green area. Again, this painting is very large. I have a hard time working small. I feel like I am suffocating. Does that make since? I am going to try it though. I have always worked on a big canvas – even in high school. I went to St. Agnes Academy in Houston, a girl’s school. I had a great art teacher - Sister Ambrose. She taught me 4 years of calligraphy, too. I have a couple of my pieces from high school. I have them in the studio. I enjoy looking at them, remembering Sister. Ok, I got a little melancholy there. Enjoy.
