Desert Series: Desert Tortoise with Prickly Pear triptych by ©Cristina Acosta. Acrylic and mixed media on wood panels. Tortoise 24" x 24", each prickly pear panel is 12" x 24.

Prickly and sharp plants and animals are the majority of the desert landscape. On foot or on horseback traveling through the desert landscape, I’ve come across so much beauty and strength. The Desert Tortoise personifies the strength and skills  needed to live long and prosper in such a world.
