Venus Fly Trap

Venus Fly Trap 8" x 10" acrylic on canvas
I've been waiting to paint this plant for awhile! This is my venus fly trap and it has been flourishing outside in its little pot.I find it kind ironic that I have a venus fly trap, considering that I'm a vegetarian. I got the chills the other day when I picked up the pot and one of heads closed. It's been getting super lime green lately because I've been feeding the plant distilled water- it doesn't necessarily need fly meat. I used a lot of gloss/matte medium in this piece, just to experiment a bit. I like how the windowsill came out, I feel like it really fits against the plant.
