This print was inspired by the prickly pear cacti I’ve seen during my hikes around the Phoenix area. I used cool blues for this print to depict the quiet mystery of the desert evening, showing the prickly pear silhouetted against the rocks and full moon in the background. The prickly pear is printed slightly transparent to convey the persistent spirit of life that cacti need to live in the extremes of the desert environment.
The print is a one-of-a-kind original mono-silkscreen print, printed with silkscreen inks on Stonehenge printmaking paper. The image area is 18″x24″, the paper size is 22″x30″. The print is sold unframed (it looks great in a standard frame) and packaged securely for shipping.
