These are all so awesome, Margaret! Oh my Lord...love the purple theme...wowzers! I can't do any more trading for a few months at least...getting ready for the kids to move home, and helping a friend move who closes on her first house next Monday! Hope to get back to it when things calm down again a bit!!!

Happy Cactus Monday.
Your drawings are beautiful! I have a night blooming cereus. It should be blooming soon! It is so pretty! I have a couple other cactus that are almost blooming too. I think one is a barrel cactus(-: The other is a grouping of small cactus. Both are really pretty. My prickly pear has not bloomed yet. Maybe this year(-:

Delightful night blooming ATC's. I love the Emerson quote. The aubergine color is so pretty, I do want to eat it. :)

Margaret,
I am continually amazed about your versatility as an artist. Now how did you do this? White is difficult to get on a dark background. As you may have noticed I am a good technician with watercolor and pen able to look at a photograph or flower and give it a little artistic spin; but executing unique and delightful designs the way you do does not just spring forth from my brain. I look at your work and feel a little trapped and less free in expression. You are my inspiration to branch out, close my eyes, and see what art might emerge. These are so beautiful.
With admiration,
Judy
