Yay! Happy Birthday to the Cactus too. My favorite spiral is back! I was trying to do that the other day while I was having a meeting, and it was just funny how it turned out. It's not half as good as yours though.
Oh yeah... the colors here is AWESOME!

Magnificent colors in the cactus!

Very much the celebration cactus. Congratulations to your dad. I get stuck on certain colors. You have been my inspiration to branch out. I bought a brilliant green blue and bold purple yesterday at the art store and used them in my cactus today. It is hard to let go and be brave with color. This is it! Yummy.

"...and in the sea there is a fish,
a fish that had a secret wish,
a wish to be a big cactus with a pink flower on it..."

Its from a Kimya Dawson song on the Juno soundtrack, and every time I look at your cactus paintings I start to hum it....and it puts me in a good mood!!
