Coffee in the Sunroom

Good practice,
spending the morning sketching,
chasing sunlight
as it moves across south facing windows.

Another page in the watercolor workbook.

Prayer Plant

Unlike the Hoya,
the Prayer Plant (Maranta leuconeura)
resists being a compliant still life subject.

Named for the habit of folding
its leaves as daylight wanes,
the plant is constantly in motion,
reacting to changing light.

 This is another watercolor painting from the artists sketchbook.

Hoya and Paint Tubes

Another watercolor painting,
this one of the hoya
that added a touch of spring green
to my home this past winter.

Hoyas, also known as Wax Plants,
are slow growing which make them
very cooperative still life subjects.
