Prickly Pear Blooms
The original oil painting, 12 x 12 entitled Prickly Pear Blooms, was painted by Eryn Tehan, in October 2019.
Golden hour descends on Torrey Pines State Natural area on the North side of the park. A prickly pear cactus reaches for the sun on the sandstone cliff. Soft rays of light cut through the sparse clouds, just long enough to softly kiss the spiny pads, and cast dramatic shadows on the sandstone overlooking the ocean.
