This 16x20 oil on canvas is based on a photo my 14 year old son took of our neighbor's front yard. She has a wonderful display of succulents, agave and cacti. This is the first painting I made that I stood back and said to myself, "I might be able to do this painting stuff". To me there was always a mystique about those who worked with oil. I decided to finally break down and take some lessons two years ago. I am such a novice compared to my new wonderful, supportive and inspiring cyber art pals. Seeing their work and reading their words make me feel blessed .
