Each winter I need to bring in our agave plant from the garden.
Each winter the darn, awful, mean, points poke me when I move, or periodically water it.
After putting up with the plant for so long, I looked closely at the beautiful shapes of the leaves.
Each one is a beautiful curve - so I opted to create a semi-abstraction of the plant I love/hate.
I originally created this in April, 2020.
Like many artists, I returned to the piece to see if it could be improved.
Fortunately on a computer, I can pull up the older painting, and make a bunch of revisions without having to redo the entire piece.
