Some new paintings from my new environs. Our compound has a lot of Aloe plants. My favourite ones have scars. Like people, this gives them character.

sodom's apple no.2
This is the empty seedpod of Calotropis procera, a large local plant related to milkweed. It is interesting that this plant, like its Canadian cousin, is also a monarch butterfly host plant.

The colours here are so different from the rainforest!
All these soothing pastels. When the aloes are short of water they get these peachy-purple hues.

Cassia seeds
acrylic on canvas
A study, perhaps, for a larger painting showcasing the great brainy-pattern on the seeds.

aloescape no. 1
acrylic on canvas
My first aloe painting, which looks a bit too much like an octopus, but nonetheless has a soothing quality.
