The weather around here has been rather dreary and humid. Things seemed to shift from Winter to Summer so quickly and has me feeling like I'm living in a desert.
Which brings me to one of my newest obsessions...cacti & succulents! I've always had a little thing for house plants and have thankfully been pretty successful at keeping them alive. Then I decided to expand my collection from a couple of average plants, to a few more exotic-like ones. Currently in our living room sits a little palm tree (one of my dream plants), and a gathering of little cacti & succulents. It might be a strange thing to get excited about but they make me love my place even more.
a new shelf/plant/owl gathering...and the top of the new palm!
All of the plant and cactus love combined with the too hot for Spring weather, had me wanting to do a little series called "in the desert". A little spin-off from my in the forest creations.
Introducing 3 paintings from "in the desert"
All available in my etsy shop !
The jackrabbit is my favorite painting I've done in a while and he will be hard to let go!
I'm thinking about doing a few more for this series and I need some help thinking of some new desert related things that don't involve creepy crawlies!! Ideas anyone?
