Magickal Cactus Patch

Magickal Cactus Patch

I am finally finished with “Magickal Cactus Patch”! In New Mexico and Arizona, there are cacti that are light blue, purple, pink, even red. When the sun sets over the horizon, several different rabbit species make an appearance. On a particular camping trip, I sat near a cactus patch and a brown rabbit sat within it. He warily watched me but didn’t run away even though I moved around to get comfortable. He must have remained sitting for about fifteen minutes then ran away just as the sun disappeared over the horizon. I didn’t take a photograph but painted the scene from memory.
