I am endeavoring to get back into the groove of drawing and doing mixed media. I am FINALLY finished with the quilt...although I have another one due in November...and we will be gone 2+weeks in September and in October. But NOW I am trying to draw again. I love than Teri, of Teri's Painted Daisies, paints a cactus each Monday, and I am going to try to join her in this. So here goes. The prickly pear cacti are in fruit now. I finished the quilt so late yesterday that I didn't really have time to complete this, but I intend to do so. This is graphite and colored pencil on moleskine.
