This turned out OK, but it had me worried for a while…

Hi friends! Yesterday I wanted to paint a still life of the succulent my hubby bought me for mothers day, isn’t this plant lovely? Too bad its days are numbered. When you are an artist who struggles to keep plants alive you tend to paint them as soon as possible LOL!

Here is how the painting turned out. I put the original painting in my shop in case anyone is interested.

Now, sit back (or grab your paints!) and enjoy this longer-than-average tutorial! Do you like shorter or longer tutorials better?
