Being Alert

Cactus Girl

Here I wanted to share another painting for my show in Puerto Rico (which opens on December 10) The idea comes from one of my illustrations.

Cactus Girl

All the thorns represent those mechanisms of self-defense or  self-protection that we need to develop. Like a rose, this girl wants to be safe in her own emotional garden.

Because that way she can produce fruits to feed herself and the important people in her life.

Natalie liked this piece so much that I decided to scan it, print it out and frame it for her room. The print looks as nice as the original canvas :)
