This past Spring I took many photos of the blooming cactus along the route where I ride my bike; and I painted this from one of those photos. There are so many colors and varieties of prickly pear cactus, ranging from yellow-green to pink, purple and deep red. The blossoms are many different colors, too. The Sonoran Desert is a colorful place in the springtime.
