Space Cactus

I wanted to share one of my newer oils. This one is called Space Cactus, 48 x 60 inches, and features a semi abstracted version of the cactus my parents bought the year I was born. I think that is the way the story goes. I ate the dirt from its pot at about age 3 in the apartment in Berea. It came with us when Nick, Dad and I moved to Grandma's in Mentor. Then it moved with me when I jumped the nest to downtown. I don't eat the dirt but I did almost kill him by overwatering. He's making a strong recovery. I have every reason to hope for the best.
