Watercolour: The Blooms of the Southwest Desert

 My newest completed watercolour paintings. Looking at them, I can almost feel the warmth of the sunny desert. The 'Argentine Giant' blooms are very fragrant, open at night and close during the day. In certain places in the southwest desert you can see the agave and the prickly pear growing naturally. That is a treat in itself but when they are blooming, well, that really is something very special.

Watercolour: 'Prickly Pear in Pink' - off to a new home

You may have noticed I haven't been posting as regularly. Below is a sample of what has been keeping me so very entertained. More info as things unfold.

What beautiful paintings of your beloved desert, Eileen - they'll be well treasured I'm sure. Smiling at seeing your house plans, as I know what it's taken to get them to this stage. Happy building!

You've done a wonderful job with this triptych Eileen! The new owner is going to be prickled with joy. (sorry, need another coffee)

Great to see your plans at another stage.....
