Playing a Little with the Camera
In the Garden
Above are a few images I took of my mother’s garden. Well mine too as I planted a lot and cared for the the garden as she got older. On the left, I had fun making a book of flowers. My daughter wrote the forward and it is dedicated to them, Sugar Plum and Sweet Pea.
Plants have played a prominent role in my life since earliest memory; however, despite my love of plants and gardening, it is my passion for oil painting that inspired these images. These images are a study of form, color and compositions for that next painting.
The garden in which most of these plants are grown is by no means a show garden. It is an ever changing canvas where the emphasis will always be on experimentation, seeking exceptional form, color and composition.
