Cactus Flower II

We had friends visiting this week so I didn't have a lot of time to paint.  Here is a watercolor sketch on Aquabord.  I really enjoy working on this surface so it was a fun project.  It's so easy to lift the paint from this surface.  I was able to lift the spikes on the cacti and the light areas in the flowers with no problem.

I received some great news this past week.  My painting, "Gone...Again" has been accepted into the San Diego Watercolor Society's 32nd Annual International Juried Exhibition.  To say I'm excited would be an understatement!  Here's a photo of that painting:


  1. Beautiful cactus flowers, Nancy! Your title reminds me of a movie I saw when I was a kid with Goldie Hawn in it, same title.

    Congratulations on your selection to the show! I knew this was a strong piece!

  2. I love your cactus sketch! The colors are so inviting and soothing. Just lovely! Congrats on getting into the exhibition!

  3. Thank you Sherry. I don't think I ever saw that movie but I love Goldie Hawn. I'll have to rent it.

    Thank you Susan.

  4. Congratulations on the exhibition! Well deserved! Love the cactus flower too! So beautiful!

  5. This is a beautiful painting, Nancy. Congratulations on being in the watercolor show!!!
