Succulents in Red

Well - I know it's been a long time. I've missed posting and being involved with other daily painters. It's that whole balancing act between being an artist and the other hats I wear. I realize that once I pick up the brush and start something, I know this is what I'm supposed to do, and eventually, I will be a true daily painter.
I found this little red vase at a garage sale for a quarter, and I love the color. It's just so intense!
The succulents are from my sister's garden. The orange was meant to be with the red.


  1. Lovely translucent vase. I love how the stems appear as red shapes. Also like the red reflection on the cloth. The orange looks great with that red vase. I especially like the bloom that is hanging down. Very nice!

  2. Martha, that red vase is vibrant!! It is so strong with the wonderful texture you create inside the vase with the leaves and stem.The rest of the painting is there to "support" the main character. Perfect
