I've always liked these weeds that some call "money plants". The challenge was to see if I could indicate the little seed pods without defining them too specifically. I'm happy with the results. I also like the spoon in the water.
I went to Stephanie Hargrave's opening at Patricia Rovzar Gallery (www.rovzargallery.com) in downtown Seattle yesterday. If you get a chance to see that, it's a great show. Stephanie does fabulous encaustic work, and this time she's done some very large pieces as well as some using more black and red- higher contrast- than usual. As powerful as they are, however, it's hard to compete with the beautiful layering evident in her softer palette paintings.
