Desert Botanical Garden, Agave

"Desert Botanical"
Copyright 2011 J.Bellinger

I love how this painting came out...lots of contrast, light/dark, warm/cool, soft/hard. The light and shadow here in the desert is so different than light where I live in Idaho.
I am enjoying the vertical composition possibilities, too.

Wonderful painting Jennifer! I will miss seeing you and all of your beautiful and amazing work. Hope you had a safe journey home and I look forward to seeing you in Arizona again.

Thanks so much, Barb! I loved getting to know you, too. Don't forget Birds in Art..your lovely little paintings would be an asset to the exhibit! See you next year!

What a wonderful painting Jennifer. You are very talented. That's quite an accomplishment to have painted 125 paintings in a year. I see a prickly pear cactus painting below. We had those growing wild at our house in the islands. They are sharp and you don't want to mess with them.

Thank you for visiting my kitchen and following along. I look forward to getting to know you better. I hope you have a great weekend.

Thanks, Diane. I must say, this is the first rock/boulder I've enjoyed painting!
