Here We Go 'Round the Prickly Pear

TS Eliot's "The Hollow Men" is the inspiration for this painting. I'd never seen a prickly pear until moving to Texas. At a workshop I took recently, a classmate did a painting of this odd fruit. I was smitten and decided to try my own version. Now I can't get that poem out of my head (thanks, Mr. Cummins).
