(70) Gardener
9 x 12, oil
private collection
This final figurative piece was painted from a photo I took at a local "community garden"-- a place of camaraderie where gardeners rent a space to garden. They can often be heard sharing ideas, tips and discoveries with each other as they work side by side. What a great concept.
"Don't underestimate the therapeutic value of gardening. It's the one area where we can all use our nascent creative talents to make a truly satisfying work of art. Every individual, with thought, patience and a large portion of help from nature, has it in them to create their own private Paradise "... Geoff Hamilton
