Helen Hunter’s “Roadrunner and Cactus” is an intimate depiction of the regional bird in its habitat. The bird looks frail but strong and stands erect next to a blooming prickly pear cactus, possibly its nesting ground. Hunter’s roadrunner is alert, concentrating on something just beyond the reach of the canvas. It could be a predator, or possible a juicy insect about to become the bird’s next meal. The peril is not revealed to the viewer but the feeling of fight or flight remains. It is a glimpse, a rare view that catches a moment in the wild and beautiful world of the surrounding Texas countryside.
