I really like a cactus or two, and when this week's drawing challenge was "cactus" I knew I had to join in.
My mom had given me a barrel cactus that bloomed many times this past summer. I enjoyed it so much, so decided to draw a blooming cactus - although I did not choose the barrel cactus.
This week I stumbled across this wonderful website that has beautiful terrariums with cactus in,
And although I didn't have the beautiful jar, or quite the makings that he had. I used pieces of succulents I had, and made myself a terrarium. I left lots of room for them to grow... which I hope they do.
It makes me smile!
To see more artistic interpretations of "cactus", head over to this weeks host of the drawing challange.
