Cholla Cactus, 8 x 6, oil/canvas panel.
I've just returned from a three-week trip to SoCal and Vegas, with a bundle of new paintings to post. But first, here's one that was done during a previous trip to San Diego a few months ago. At the time, I couldn't decide if I liked it well enough to not just paint over it. After some time away, I think that it says something, so here it is. It's a good idea to put away work and look at it later when objectivity is possible.
