"Night Bloomer" 8" X 8" Oil on panel SOLD
We have a particular cactus that grows in this area and is quite unique. It's called a "Night Blooming Cereus." Twice a year or more they put forth the most incredible flowers which are an intense color, usually yellow, orange, red and fuschia. White is also possible. These flowers are almost neon-bright and I kid you not! The special thing about them is their "bulbs" build and prepare for their big show. They usually bloom at night initially, and they last for one day. Then they dry up and are gone. It's almost a spiritual thing that these magnificent blossoms are so spectacular, yet so short-lived.
