GALLERY 5 – My Gardens

“I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way – things I had no words for”

Georgia O’Keeffe

My artwork is derived from my surroundings, and  the beauty of nature  is my inspiration. I paint what I love,  offering  the viewer a slice of life from my perspective.  Living on 2 acres of country property, our small orchard consists of fragrant blossoming apple, plum, nectarine and pear trees. Our flower beds are continually being rearranged with bold new variegated and unique  perennials, fragrant lilacs, brilliant burning bushes, stately pines and vigorous vines,  frothy smoke trees, a sprawling red-bud  tree,  a graceful Japanese maple and abundant colourful annuals. A lush and bountiful vegetable garden takes center stage,  as  fresh produce offers healthy choices for our dinner table as well as my watercolour palette.   As a nature enthusiast and obsessive gardener, I am inspired to create an intimacy between the viewer and my subject, using vibrant colours and textures to express my love of  plants and the wonders of nature.
