Saguaro


The most impressive of all cactus in the Sonoran Desert is Carnegiea gigantea. Nothing seems to daunt them as they appear to grow anywhere. The two in this painting were in the Superstition Mountains, growing on a the shear rock face. At the foot of the older Saguaro, violet-colored flowers bloomed, a lovely contrast to the chartreuse lichen covering the rock.
