"Ocotillo" Oil, 8" X 10"

This is a plein air piece, painted last month.  The Ocotillo is an amazing Sonoran Desert Cactus.  Most of the year it looks like dead branches, with deadly thorns.  During the summer monsoon or a rainy winter it will leaf out and produce beautiful sprays of orange flowers on the tips of the branches.
