While I do have a steady project/theme I am working on, there are moments when you have to drop everything and capture something that is absolutely beautiful. This still life of a small cactus plant is one such moment. It caught my attention as it sat on my bedroom window sill basking in the morning light. I had to paint it.

One of the first things I do in a new studio is find exactly on the horizon where the sun rises and sets. It is interesting to watch as it shifts from one point to another; during winter, spring, summer and fall. I feel a sense of place in my environment having this knowledge.

This oil painting is on stretched canvas, unframed and self hanging.
