A Pun on Opuntia
Oil painting on slab-built earthenware ceramic. Gold leaf to handle, rim and spout.
A naked man and a cactus - the pun is too obvious!
I began painting a few years ago, using the ceramic surface instead of a canvas. So instead of hanging the thing on a wall, it goes on a shelf instead.
