All My Money in One Pot

©A.K.SIMON - All My Money in One Pot - oil on linen - 10" x 8" - $100

This was a play between the thin paper-like feel of the money plant and the thin wings of the almost obscure dragon fly sitting on the little glass jar. And then there was the challenge of the mirror in the background. I have always been fascinated with how the seed of the money plant is held in that thin tissue layer. Then once removed what is left is a beautiful layer of tissue almost like vellum. And, I love painting on vellum.
