"Making Moonshine..."

...in pint sized packages...
just perfect for
popping into a pretty purse or a pant pocket
or
a plastic protective ATC page...
ready for a Muse to imbibe for the sheer pleasure
of it.
Each vintage has been packaged under its own
private label...signed by the designer
and
has been sent directly from the manufacturer to
the "Light of the Moon" swap
at Illustrated ATCs. :)
"Full Moon White Tank Mountains"
"Saguaro Sentry"

"Midnight Arroyo Magic"

...and lastly,
"Through the Mesquite...Painted Desert".
So...
why not sit back and relax,
sip in some of this prickly desert warmth,
and celebrate in style this last
Cactus Monday
of the month of January.
(BTW...
If you are in the mood...
a larger portion of desert heat can be requested
by simply clicking on each image.)

Your beautiful work makes me realize that I have been here 15 years, photographed many cacti, but never drew or painted one. Need to put that on the list because I am leaving the desert soon.

....and I just clicked "Cactus Monday" and to my amazement saw that I had posted a couple of my pictures there. I am under Mwinga9. The circle is round. Maybe I should just paint one of my own photographs. (A 4-year old could think of that one).

Margaret your drawings are so incredible to me. Saquaro Sentry is my favorite. Someday I would like to get one of your drawings for my home. They would go perfect in my Mexican home! What do you think?

Just what I need, some desert heat while the ice is falling. My fave is the first one. WOW.

All these are really good, but I especially like the top one...it reminds me of our back garden in the moonlight!
