Day 21 of the 28 in 28 - Delicious Monster

 Today's painting is the latest in my Hawking's snail exploration series where a precocious snail has found the pleasure of choice...  Today's shell choice is vase with a few stems of one of her favorite plants, the Monstera Deliciosa, or, the Swiss Cheese plant.  I prefer delicious monsters, myself and titled the painting as such... :) Either way, the shapes are luscious and the color... same. ♥♥♥

According to wikipedia,  "The specific epithet deliciosa means "delicious", referring to the edible fruit, while monstera means "monstrous", in reference to the size that this plant can grow to, over 9 m (30 ft) in many cases."
