Plants that can hurt you

Two small cactus plants, oil on gesso board panel, 5" x 7",  2012
I recently began to buy cactus plants which might not seem such a big deal, but it is for me. I grew up with lots of plants in the house, but we never had a single cactus plant. Even when I lived on my own, I had lots of different plants, but still no cactus. When I got married and had children, still no cactus.
I guess I'm not a big fan of plants that can hurt you.
Anyway, last November and December, I went on a cactus plant buying binge and bought a small variety of them. They are really quite a lot of fun to paint. I have to remember not to water them too much. And to stay clear of the prickly bits.
