Potted Plants-ACEO

The ACEO challenge of the week was "pot". I came up with a more serious painting - "Potted Plants in a Row". I love when challenges force me to do a painting that has been in my mind for some time now. Most of these plants are long gone now, lost to freeze, or old age. They were sitting on my deck rail back in 1992. Only the first plant on the left, feverfew, still remains. That was my first feverfew. That plant later moved with me, and reseeded and spread throughout my present yard. But it does make a lovely addition in the summer, even with it's wild appearance.

This is acrylic on 140 lb. watercolor paper. ACEO size - 2.5x3.5 inches.
