Potted Plant – gouache on paper, 12″ x 10″
Contemporary realism, still life

I’m having a lot of fun painting in gouache on paper. And even more fun painting still lives. I’ve had this pot for a lot of years. I believe I got it at a garage sale at least 20 years ago. I used to keep this pot and plant in my office when I had a day job. I had no windows and people were amazed at how great the plant looked. It is artificial but you have to feel it to find that out.
