Two Plants, One Bowl (Still Life), 2020

Textie, quilting cotton, thread

16.25 x 20.5 in. 


This is my first still-life. This work depicts two of my household plants; a Dragon tree on the left and a Jade plant on the right. The Dragon tree has had many battles with my pet bunny, Jam. That is why there are two stumps featured. The bowl, that is in the middle of both plants, is Jam’s water bowl.
