7″x5″ pastel on sanded paper
I decided to spend a few more minutes on this study. Spines are my favorite part of a cactus, so I wanted to add them. This photo was taken in lousy light, the light value of the background is a beautiful blush. It photographed almost white today.
Please enjoy a celebration of pink paintings this month, in honor of breast cancer awareness. I paint for my friends and family who have fought the good fight against cancer, for their families, and for all caregivers who help along with the journey toward a healthy self (body, soul, and spirit). In my strokes of pink, are prayers of strength and healing.
