Living trinkets

It’s the end of the first week of 2021, and it’s more chaotic than I could have ever expected. I’m working 60+ hours during the week for a month, on top of side projects and series I’d forgotten I’d signed up for.

I’m working on re-establishing balance. On my way back from my favorite grocery store in Koreatown, I passed by a plant shop and brought home some little friends.

Here’s the Pilea I picked up! The pot is an old terra cotta that I painted over with acrylics. The succulent was gifted to me by the shop!

My new little green friends are in good company with their neighbors.
