The plant above has been sitting on my windowsill, asking to be painted. I declined for a while wondering how to handle all the green. Often green is my respected opponent; so easily dominating in an unharmonious way. But the pot with its beautiful design (simplified in the painting) won, and the green did not.

    I agree with your assessment – the green provides complement rather than conflict. Well done!
    And thank you again for sharing.
