Do you love houseplants? I sure do! I started my cactus collection back in college. At that time (late 90s) the vintage bohemian apartment filled with plants was not trendy, it was just what we did since our landlords wouldn’t let us have pets. But now……..now they are all the rage.
I love the plant trend personally, since I’ve collected cacti and succulents for decades.

This small series of mini canvases is the first Cactus Odyssey at Lake & River Studio. I doubt it will be the last.

Sizes range from 12×12 inches for the largest, down to 4×4 inches for several of the smallest pieces. All pieces are on stretched cotton canvas painted with acrylic paints, acrylic inks, water based inks, and various paint pens. Detailing has been done with brushes, droppers, and acrylic paint pens.

This Cactus Odyssey is a fiesta of bright colors, fun layers, and intricate markings.
All minis are one of a kind original paintings with no available prints.

Available for Purchase

Painting is done with high flow acrylic paints and archival inks. After drying, painting is covered in a light spray coat of UV resistant archival varnish.

Do not hang painting in direct sunlight or bright UV light. Light can eventually fade colors and degrade materials. Do not hang in high humidity locations. Areas with high humidity can cause canvas frame to warp, although this occurrence is rare with a canvas this small.

All monitors are a little different and colors may not be exactly as shown. For reference, the backgrounds are done with Golden brand High Flow acrylic paint in either indigo or magenta.
