Blooming Saguaro #23
Original acrylic painting on canvas
6" x 6" x .75" painting size (canvas size)
7.5" x 7.5" x 1" frame size (outer frame dimensions)
Contemporary and stylish, this sweet little original acrylic painting comes complete with a floating style frame and can hang just about anywhere. Frame is 'natural' or unfinished and has a neutral look that complements the artwork. Wired on the back and ready to hang.
For the background I chose a pure Venetian red (red oxide) to create a natural earthy feel that has a warm kind of a 'brick red' look. Venetian red was very popular choice during the Renaissance era and can be seen in many Italian paintings from that time.
The saguaro cactus is the official Arizona state flower. This majestic and iconic cactus has been an ongoing theme that I often return to and explore with paint. See more from my Desert Garden Collection~ Sue Dranchak
