Several months ago I bought a snake plant. I have been a doting plant mother, eager to watch new leaves grow. They seem to grow quickly at first, then they sort of rest for a bit. And before I realize it, they are the same height as older leaves.

In day 1, I used a honeycomb stencil. I thought it was perhaps too soft. On today’s piece, I think it is too dark. Tomorrow I should get it just right. Ha ha ha. There is white pen outlining some of the circular shapes on the top left and right. It shows up more in life. I also used it to define the line of the table.

I am so inspired by the work of Janet Bradish. She has taken part in previous 30-day challenges, and each day I could not wait to see her piece. She often uses patterns in her paintings. Her blog shows her work for the challenges. Great textures!

The Creative Challenge group is 73 members strong!
Thanks to everyone for making it a success. Your enthusiasm is awesome!

    Layers and shapes and colors and textures and lines, oh my! Sheila, I am captivated by the juxtaposition of bold simplicity and subtle complexity—keeps drawing me in for another exploration.

    Huh: I wonder if a couple of my plants are snake plants. Could be! Who knew?!

      They are hard to kill. Perfect plant for me. LOL. 🙂
      I was thinking the plant and the pot might be too simplistic. But now I will leave them as is. It was late, And I did not have time to add details to the leaves. But then there are many different kinds, and some of them are plain.
      I usually call it a Mother-In-Law’s tongue. Funny that both nicknames for this plant are frightening. LOL 🙂


Thanks for visiting! I hope you'll take a minute and say hello. Always great to hear from you!
