Happy new year! Here is my first composition of 2021. A Coprosma kirkii planted on a rock attached to a plate, hung on my living room wall. This species native to New Zealand can withstand temperatures down to 5C (41F) but also does well indoors. Still, I will probably hang it outside in the garden during the growing season next year. I like the flow to the left of the branches that mimic the flow of the details in the rock. The LED light shining on it 12h daily also adds to the composition with the cast shadows. I am extremely happy that I managed to actualize pretty accurately the vision that I had while conceptualizing this creation. I should also note that this is a 3 year old pencil-size cutting. That is to say that it is possible to do some pretty awesome stuff with little to no investment and some imagination. The composition is 10" wide by 5" tall and about 6" deep. Oh, and yes, I will need to take it off the wall water it in the kitchen and let it strain with the kitchen dishes for a few minutes before putting it back on the wall.
Here is a close up of the composition:
A bit further away to see it in context:
Here is a side view:
It can also be kept on a plate stand:
