Desert Cholla Cactus Pastel Painting | Joshua Tree Signed, Framed Original Art
An original signed and framed 9x12” pastel painting of a charismatic Cholla cactus in Joshua Tree National Park. The California desert looks like an underwater coral garden, but you definitely don't want to touch these cacti!
Original artwork by Catherine LaPointe Vollmer. Colors may vary from monitor to monitor.
Painting measures 9x12" on mounted archival sanded paper. If painting will be shipped unframed, it will be protected with a layer of glassine paper between two rigid boards.
Framing tips for pastels:
- Frame behind glass, not acrylic or polystyrene. The static from plastic-type glazing will pull the pastel dust away from the paper.
- Pastels must not touch the glass, or they will smear. Use a mat or framing spacer.
- If matting, put some foam core or a spacer between the painting and the mat. This will prevent pastel dust from falling in front of the mat, discoloring it.
