Pincushion Vintage: Wine and Ink ORIGINAL Desert Flora Painting by Gilat Ben-Dor


| /

The pincushion cactus, a compact visual cousin of the barrel cactus, offers a playful take on desert shapes. Cactus-on-flowering-cactus is the order of the day, as geometry, beauty and nature intersect as if rounded, succulent parcels. This piece is part of the Desert Vintage series: desert flora painted in layers using aged wine, ink, and water washes. Even with smooth fine art paper, texture is built and a puckered character can be seen on the page.

"The smell of desert rain permeates the air as the sky turns a dusty rose. Nostalgic thoughts stir up memories of this road, driven before, ending in a rendezvous over aged wine, old friendships, and the wisdom in combining them." - Gilat Ben-Dor
