Saguaro Cactus 15 x 22

15″ x 22″ pastel painting



My son and his family moved to Tucson, AZ a few years ago. As a result I try to get out there for a visit a few times a year. I’ve fallen in love with the desert and it’s plants. The Saguaro cactus is my favorite and Tucson has a heavy population of them. This particular one was probably more than 18 feet tall!

I normally scan my paintings for the best quality. This painting is too large for my scanner. I plan to scan sections and put it together in Photoshop. Please revisit in a few days for a higher quality image which will show the pastel strokes in greater detail.

I have many photos to work from and will probably be painting more. There will definitely be a new Saguaro cactus painting which I’m in the process of composing.

I hope you have a wonderful holiday season with family and friends!
