Jade Plant



There has been a steady very gentle rain all day today and of course I felt like going to the garden center. Wet or not I looked at all the plants. It was really nice because I was nearly the only one there. I bought several red begonias and then spied this really pretty little jade plant. I placed it in this green glass vase that I have and liked the variety of greens. It was difficult for me to paint though. So many leaves and very little value change between them. I may try again but I wanted to list since I have been struggling with a hurt hand and haven't done so in several days.

Great job, Linda! The colors are beautiful. Hope your hand is better - and that it is not your painting hand!!

Thanks to you all for encouragement. This little painting was a challenge to say the least. It is not my painting hand.

Nice one! I especially like the contrast on top that made the leaves stand out.
