Assignment #2

The May painting assignment for the Calypso Moon Artist Movement was to paint a "Secret Garden". A place outside, full of natures beauty, where you find serenity, peace, and rejuvenation.

I borrowed this "secret garden" from my mother-in-law. She is a fantastic gardener, growing gorgeous flowers and shrubbery. Her roses are thrilled with the slow and wet coming of spring at her home in North Carolina. Her chives were excited, too, reaching for the sky and daring you to pick them and put them in a soup.

This is an 11" x 14" acrylic painting on canvas board.

I just want to sit on the bench, prop my feet on the mouth of the chiminea, and enjoy the day!
