This latest painting by Adrian Regis, painted on Sunday 29th June 2014, is called Sail Plant. Also called a Spathe, Latin name is Spathiphyllum wallisii. The Spathe, a modified leaf appearing as a single large cream petal, changes to green as the plant ages. The narrow central part is called the Spadix; we are reliably told.

Here, the plant is represented by the use of gouache and acrylics on a 40cm x 40cm cotton canvas. The plant was represented against a silver background. The background has sgraffito that might suggest outdoor features to the viewer. The Sail Plant is an indoor plan. Perhaps the background in the picture will add mystique.
