Cactus as a model

Cactus have always fascinated me. I have a few cactus at home, sometimes they go along  the years, but sometimes not. They become suddenly ill and died.
This cactus in the picture I have years at home. In the summer of 2006, the cactus bloom for the first time but by busy I have not seen that. When I saw that its first flower was bloomed I immediately took my brushes and a canvas and started painting. I promise myself that despite problems, I wanted to miss nothing more, that I should keep looking for everything  around me... because life is wonderful!

 The first flower is blooming...

To my joy I saw that the cactus had a new node. This time I have seen her develop from node to flower.

 The development...

Open to the world... 

The departure: the second flower is blooming... 

The cactus has two 'kids', pen drawing 2007.

 I repotted them in 2008 ... 

I fond once the cactus (on the left side of this painting) on the sidewalk (with other three cactus). After a few weeks at home, he suddenly flourish. The other cactus (on the right side) is the cactus of this blog, with three nodes.

This year two flowers flourished almost simultaneously, they stayed together for a long time.
