"Still Life with Cut Lemon and Houseplant" floral fruit food botanical art painting original oil on canvas

6 x 6"
oil on canvas

I wanted to call this one "Cut Flowers Hate Houseplants (root envy)," but I restrained myself. What famous artist said it takes two to make a painting - one to paint it and another to kill her before she names it something stupid? I think I've got that quote wrong, anyway...

This little plant, for those who may be curious, is a Peperomia Jayde. It's taking a vacation from its normal abode on my kitchen windowsill to spend some time in the studio. Jayde isn't the only one on vacation - I'm off for a week of visiting family and friends in the Motherland Midwest. See you when I get back!
