VOYAGE OF THE PRICKLY PEAR by artist Nicole Bruckman
Acrylic on Cradled Panel, 5” x 7"
Via the artist: While The Prickly Pear, thrive in warm weather and desert climates, they are also among the most cold-tolerant of the lowland cacti. Tank, who is portrayed in this painting, recently relocated from Los Angeles, where he was born and raised, to Cleveland, Ohio. Much like the prickly pear, Tank has learned to adapt and even thrive in the cold habitat and also like the prickly pear, Tank who is fearful in new situations, can come off prickly at first but underneath he is sweet and delightful, much like the fruit of the prickly pear.
