Cactus, Succulents and Desert Botannicals

About the cactus series.


As an introduction to this gallery and this collection of cactus and succulent paintings I will start by writing I am now a resident of Tucson, AZ.  This move to the desert was my first

real introduction to the world of desert botanicals. Many years ago when I was a young art

student one of my very first art classes was an introduction to the Golden Ratio and the

Fibonacci spiral or Fibonacci sequence.  I have never lost my fascination for the geometry in

nature.  This collection was  specifically painted to share my interest and enthusiasm of the

patterns we find in the natural world.
