During a spring visit to the Boyce Thompson Arboretum, which is Arizona's largest and oldest botanical garden, artist Sherri Aldawood came across this cactus. "I was amazed and inspired when I saw the flowers blooming so profusely on this prickly pear," she says. She worked to capture the soft light falling across the golden yellow, pink and purple flowers and deep green paddles.

Sherri Aldawood didn't intend to always paint flowers, but over time her love of gardens started to permeate her art. She focuses on the light and color of the flowers on the canvas. Sherri prefers alla prima, working with wet layers of paint instead of letting them dry. She keeps the paint as wet as possible by using walnut and clove oil to extend the drying time.
