cactus flower | Davis Mountains, Texas. | Chihuahuan Desert plants | colored pencil drawing
10" x 8" colored pencil drawing on archival paper

This heavily layered colored pencil vignette on acid-free paper suggests the transparency of the blossoms and the thick, thorned stalks of this indicator plant of the Chihuahuan Desert
