Money Plant Pods

30x24 1998 $1000

Money Plant arrived in my yard by accident. A happy accident, I have always thought. It grows well here. I remembered the plant from my childhood so when the first plants produced the distinctive coin shaped seed pods, I gathered them up and spread them around my garden. I was disappointed the following spring when they did not appear in the areas where I had spread the seeds, but the following year they blossomed everywhere! I particularly liked the combination of light and shadow, blossom and pods in this composition.
