I was out researching this ‘Prickly Park’ for our Urban Sketching group and just had to stop for a quick sketch of this purple Prickly pear cactus. The perfect job for Cactus Monday 😄
Ink and watercolor on Arches 140# watercolor paper.
A sketch from the past with a new haiku to celebrate February 1st
Cold month with a hint of warm
Hope is in the air’
Happy February first!
It’s not only cacti that inspire me, it’s nature in general. This leaf being a small piece of nature that grabbed my attention.
‘And yet one more leaf
Laying on the road so quiet
‘Sketch me’, it yelled out’
So I did
Water-soluble ink and pencil in the sketchbook from Suzy. It has really nice paper.
I am always on the lookout for interesting Cactus when I walk and this one inspired me yesterday.
Always an inspiration
To enjoy daily’
Happy Cactus Monday!

How cold is it? Yesterday the low was 35 F and today is a little colder. Winter in Arizona! Snow in the mountains but none here in the valley.
‘Even my T. Bear
Needs a warm-y hat and scarf
40 is cold here!’

This was a piece of art I did in 2013 and it came as a memory on Facebook today. I love Maxine.
It cracks me all over again because I remember the fun I had doing it.
And I haven’t changed 😂😂😂
