Barrel Cactus

6 x 6 inches, Oil on Gessoboard - In our climate we only see these in greenhouses. We can grow one type of cactus through the cold winter though.  It looks a lot like a prickly pear cactus but hugging the ground and has beautiful yellow flowers. I used scraffito to scratch through the darker paint for the spines.
