In Full Bloom

My image titled “Hello Mellow Yellow” was selected to be for the In Full Bloom Art Show at In Full Bloom Art Show Maureen Kirk-DetbernerTohono Chul Park!  The show starts on February 19, 2016 with a reception from 5:30 – 7:30 at the gallery.

I’m so excited to have my image selected for this important Tucson art show.  Tohono Chul Park offers several new shows each year.  Their gallery is on the grounds of the park and features a wonderful venue for art.

The prospectus for this show was to submit art that reflected the flowers that bloom in the Arizona desert.  I picked this image as it is the center of a barrel cactus flower.  This photograph was taken in the heat of the desert summer.  The barrel cactus blooms range in color from red, to orange, to pink, to yellow and even purple.

This image is considered digital art as I did hand paint some of the areas.  There were areas on the petals that were blown out and distracted from the overall look of the flower.
