Thank you for looking.

Approx 6 X 8 in. on paper. Background is many layers of green, various reds and even a little yellow.

I imagine this is one that would have to be seen in person. There are some nice effects showing in the background.

Fair comment. The lighter color is pretty blocked up in the foto.

Stapeliad, thank you.

Dramatic!
What I like is that you made the brush marks do the work of creating the single stem - know what I mean?:)

Striking. The translucence of the stem is good too.

Colin, thank you. I sat and stared at it a long time before putting any light colors on it.

Carol, thank you. I don't know what all grows in my so-called lawn, but that thing was there, holding pretty much that pose.

Maureen, thank you. Almost melodramatic, perhaps. I did want to express the whole stem by the twists and turns of the brush.

Mary I'm glad you found it pleasing.
