Pastel on Art Spectrum Burnt Umber
As much as I love the desert and her beautiful plants, I love the rain-forest too. I am a study in opposites in many areas of my life and my love of plants is no different. From the harsh and spiny agave to the delicate and lovely orchid.
No progress shots on this one - I was in the moment of Hawaii in my head....not in the process or technique. According to google reverse image search, this is a Ti plant. Cordyline fruticosa - or the 'good luck' plant.
I didn't share much about my trip on social media, until we were leaving. I wanted it to be private. My art has been suffering and my artist was very depleted. She needed to water her soul. Hana did just that.
