The Lunaria Collection
This collection was inspired by the dried money plant or silver dollar plant (also known as lunaria which means "moon-like") that my grandmother, Florence Miller, kept around her home. After encountering dried money plant at our farmers market in Ann Arbor a few weeks ago, (I purchased some, of course!) I then noticed it in the cottage in the film "Dan in Real Life"... I started seeing it everywhere. It seemed a fitting and interesting subject as a theme for a collection of paintings, so here we are! It's been a sweet way to remember my grandmother, explore some abstract painting strategies, and think about the idea of dried or preserved things. Dried money plant is a shadow of its former glory, but its shriveled form has a beauty and new life of its own.
