The Sansevieria Series I

I wanted to see how different mediums affected how an item was portrayed in art. I picked a sansevieria (mother-in-law's tongue) as my subject, and set about experimenting.

This first painting is in watercolour and ink - a pen and wash.

Sans I 

I've decided to have a series of three. Do come back and see the others.


  1. Dear Pat I will be back. This one turned out super. Take care and have a great Easter weekend. Hugs!

  2. We call it 'Snake Plant' over here....I wonder if that's a reference to 'Mother-in-law's tongue'.....? lol Lovely sketch!

  3. Very good! We call this plant 'women's tongue' in Holland, but I like your name better. Not all women have a sharp tongue, don't you agree?

  4. Thanks,Debbie! Hope you have a wonderful Easter.

  5. Snake plant? That's another good name. 😁

  6. Judy, absolutely agree...but also, not all mother in laws have a sharp tongue either. So maybe Snake plant is best 😁
