Dazzling Agave (pronounced as uh-gah-vay)

Now here's my new experiment with colors! I took a simple green succulent and wanted to make it look abstract. Hope you like my fantasy -

Dazzling Agave - 12x16 inches, Oil on Canvas Panel
I tried to take the best picture here, but nowadays I feel its a challenge to take a picture of my painting. In person, the painting looks a bit different since one can see the depth of color and its variations. The camera doesn't really capture all of it.

About Agave: These kind of succulents are found in abundance in southern and western United States. It was considered sacred plant by Ancient Mexicans. It was a belief that the liquid from this plant purified the body and soul.
I thought this will be interesting for you all to know that the juices from the agave after fermenting, leads to the drink called tequila.


  1. Thanks for the info on Agave.. this is a good interpretation and just turn it around and you will see an array of fields,, the beauty of an abstract I would say:-)

  2. This is beautifully painted Prerana. I really like the colors you chose and the abstracted composition.
