welcome to my houseplant party



My friend invited me to a party tonight, but instead of going I am at home on a Saturday night drawing and naming my houseplants. I'm such a social misfit. I can't believe I even get invited to parties:)

Sorry the sketches are so small. You can click to enlarge, but please note the composition is two separate images.

*LOVE* the choice of names. Bertha is obviously the most outgoing of the group. : )

Hey social misfit. Naming your plants sure beats going to the mall (which i had to do) on a Saturday evening. Hahaah. I love PEANUT. Gosh, i would love to house peanut for a while and see how it does in the New Jersey light. :-) I love your drawings -- and again, your handwriting complements them so nicely.

Thanks Julie, France and Andrea for your feedback. France-Mall...Saturday....yeah, you win the reject award!

I think it was a good thing you missed the party...otherwise, you wouldn't have made these nice plant sketches. Nothing wrong with that :)

Advise on your question: Try to stay with monotone colors. It's the safest way and will always work. If you decide to add another color, try a complimentary color...just as long as it helps the statue pop...just don't let the background overpower the main object. Feel free to email me if have more question. Good luck.

Gerald- Thanks so much for the thoughtful advice. I will share what I'm working on once I'm finished.

I love your plant sketches! And hey, socially misfitting is not such a bad thing ;)

I'm glad you stayed home, if you had gone we'd miss that great picture of your plants.

I just read someone elses comment that said the same thing. So I should say ditto.

Wonderful drawings...and I'm with you! I'm such a hermit--my best friend had a lovely housewarming party and I made the invitations for her, using a watercolor I painted of her garden. I didn't go to the party, preferring to stay home and draw something equally important as houseplants, I'm sure. I really prefer time with friends one on one, rather than in parties. An evening at home with Bertha et al sounds just lovely to me!
