Oil on panel, 8"x8"
I enjoy painting the prickly pear cactus, they seem to have so much personality. They always remind me of a weathered old man living in the desert like a character Robert Earl Keen Jr sang about in "Gringo Honeymoon"... "he knew a Crusty Caballero that played an old gut string guitar." That's all I need to create a vivid image of what this guy looks like, something about that short description speaks volumes. *Lyrics by Robert Earl Keen Jr
