A little variation on my bigger painting 'The greenhouse', a Pilea family. It's really tiny, 11x11cm, I love to do such small work. It's very meditative, sometimes I think I've must have been a monk who painted miniatures in my previous life :)
I never had a green thumb really. Most plants who tried to live with me managed to stay alive for several months, but then I forgot to water them a couple of times and I found them back in a miserable state or worse. But this has changed recently. Since we moved we have a really tiny garden and I miss the green and nature that surrounded us in our last house, so I try to bring more green in my life with plants. I have quite a collection of them now, and for now most of them are alive and kicking, my Pilea Pepperomioides even got some little Pilea babies recently! Now I am dreaming of a greenhouse full of beautiful home grown plants.
