A hand-lettered illustration of a blossoming purple prickly pear cactus! This archival giclee reproduction print is part of the ongoing Succulent! series—look for more collectible prints to be added to the shop soon.
This illustration is inspired by my sketches of cactus blooms in Big Bend National Park, located in the Chihuahuan Desert of southwest Texas. (You can see those sketches in this post.) The prickly pear, also known as nopales and paddle cactus, are native to the deserts of Mexico and the American Southwest. In addition to their edible fruit, prickly pear cacti are renowned for their unique shape and spectacularly colored flowers.
