I liked the contrast between this Bok Choy’s pale, curved, glistening stalks and its deeply ruffled and veined foliage.  I focused on painting fast and kept a spray bottle handy to mist the stems and leaves often.  The challenge of capturing this before it faded was a reminder of how quickly one’s own life can change or end.
