"Prickly Pears" by Leada Wood, Conterporary Texas Artist


After the wax
This is another Faux Batik, they are exciting to create...and could become addictive, at least for a little while.  The fun thing about painting is the creative process and where it takes never know where a painting will end up...if it turns out at all!

 I love to paint prickly pear cactus, in the spring they have beautiful flowers, I call them Texas roses. The flowers come in a variety of colors, yellow, orange and fuchsia. When they are through flowering they develop this little red fruit, which makes wonderful jelly, just beware of the thorns!
