I have always loved succulents. I love how hardy they are.  They survive the winters where I live, and they don’t mind neglect. They thrive on neglect.  They are happy wherever you plant them…in good soil or a crack in a rock.  The best part?? They produce little babies “chicks” that hang off the mother plant “Hens” that can then be planted somewhere else in your garden.

One day, I was outside wandering in my garden and looked down on my “Hens and Chicks”.  The sunlight was beaming off them and casting such beautiful colors of purple and pinks mixed with greens.  Because I was so entranced, I gazed at them really closely and noticed that each Hen and Chick had little white spikes on them.  I had never noticed that before!

I knew that I needed to paint them right then and there!!

I work with a company called Fine Art America who offers prints of my paintings in various sizes at great prices!  You can get the painting on paper or canvas!  At Fine Art America, you can choose the print with a frame and mat right on the site.  Or order a Gallery Wrapped Canvas Print which would not need a frame, unless you would like one.  Each print is sent directly to you!  Each print comes with a money back guarantee!! 

I decided to offer “Hens and Chicks” (8 x 10) as a gallery wrapped canvas print for $40.00 until February 25, 2013.  Of course this painting (or any of my other paintings) will still be available after February 25, 2013.  The limited time promotion is available Here.
