Beauty of Oil Painting

Beauty of Oil Painting with Gary and Kathwren Jenkins

Southwest Cactus Flower

Gary planted rose bushes in his garden, but between those rose bushes sprouted spontaneous cacti, specifically the Southwest Cactus flower. This inspired Gary for this episode's scene. It's a beautiful combination of roses and this surprise cactus, which in the Southwest is often considered a weed.

With palette in hand and clean canvas before them, the couple calmly and confidently move step-by-step through the creation of one of their brilliantly colored floral oil paintings. This season, Gary expands the subjects of his paintings to include portraits of animals and landscapes.
