Oil on Canvas
This painting is one of those that I thought was going to be easy but the painting itself had different ideas. I had a photo of my sister’s garden that I liked but I thought it was too much like “Daisy Love”. So I added more to the painting. I took parts from several photos to create this. It took a long time. In the end, I had a perfect green lawn and I felt it too even and bright and just didn’t work, so I had to take the brush and work on top of it to add leaves, grass, etc. That took a lot of courage, but it worked out OK. There is a purple pump in the foreground and it seemed the most important thing there to me and I didn’t know why. I still don’t, but would miss it if it were gone. I even had my sister take photos of it so I could see it better than I could in the original photo. The “ treasures” are different garden ornaments (three of them, can you find them?) but the real treasure is Mom herself. Obscured by a simple life in a working class neighborhood and a role as a homemaker, Mom was a treasure to those who had the pleasure of knowing her.
