SOLD a sticker: 9/18/13;9/22/13;5/29/14; a card 9/2/14;

This pen and ink sketch was done while I attended a picnic at Catalina State Park just north of Tucson, Arizona. I drew it on the paper table cloth, when it turned out well I tore it out.

The giant saguaro is the iconic image of our Sonoran desert. One this large is probably over two hundred years old… so it has ‘witnessed’ much change during its life. Indians, missionaries, miners, ranchers & cattle and now park rangers and harried city folk looking for a moment of nature’s solace. ; – ))

    After I found and submitted this sketch I realized how much I like it, so it’s pinned up next to my computer… an experiment in competing with the computer images… ; – )

    they stand there all day in that dam heat and never complain wow what determination nature has nice drawing

  • and the best part of this giant is that while I sketched him he didn’t move a single arm!

    Now this is something you guys have that we Brits don’t have :(

  • You have so much else… that giant cactus can’t be missed all that much! I mean you have an actual proper language, rather than our patois version, that we butcher even further on a regular basis… hahaha
