Saguaro Blooms

Crowned by flowers, the saguaro carries it's blooms high enough that only those with wings, ladder or telephoto lens can get a close up view. Beginning as Shrek-like knobs, these protuberances erupt into lush white flowers, an amazing adornment and lovely lure for birds and bats.
- Nancy Boudreau

Below, I include a photo of the art studio, where the painting was created, working from photos taken during a trip last May to Phoenix, Arizona.

This painting is about 5" x 7" acrylic on gessoed mat board, protected in a cream-colored mat. As with all these little studies, the text above is handwritten on the back of the painting, which is also signed and dated. For comments and queries, please feel free to contact me directly at:
