I took this photograph of this orange cactus prickly pear flower at Huntington Gardens. The colors of this flower reminds me of a glorious sunrise or sunset... I hope that you will enjoy this photo!
I love to paint flowers, you may see some of my finished paintings at www.lisarusso.com if you'd like.
Here is a sketch of a rosebud. This gently blooming rose is standing tall. I doubt I'll paint it, but I did enjoy sketching it.
I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in June. This is day 15.
This is a rough sketch.
