Inspiration: “Prickly Pear” is a 7×5 inches oil painting created from a photo I took in Sedona, Arizona in 2008. Cacti are complex creatures. The flat paddles of the prickly pear turn (rotate) in space as it grows into a tangled structure. For an artist, the paddle forms create foreshortening and color challenges. Some paddles reflect light from the sunny part of the sky, while others reflect light from the darker part of the sky (north or east, when the sun is low on the western horizon). Some reflect the warmth of sunlight bouncing up from the soil and rocks. Some have a glancing side light.   As in usual in my art, the paint surface is delicate, clean, and refined. ~ Nancy Lee Moran

As of June 2012, no prints or reproductions have been made. If the artist ever makes prints from the image, they will be on watercolor paper, so as to preserve the singularity of the oil original.
