Purple Passion

Watercolor on gallery wrapped canvas - 30” x 30”

The echinopsis cactus serves as the focal point for this piece. Sometimes referred to as Easter Lily cactus, it is a plant that is densely covered with spines. The giant flowers (4-6 inches in size) are often multicolored with a beautiful translucent effect when in the sunlight. Most blooms only last one day and typically open at night. Larger plants can have several buds developing at different rates so a single plant can be in bloom for several days.

"Purple Passion" is also available as a fine art giclee.
