The calendar states that it’s officially Spring but here in New England it feels like winter with endless snow storms and freezing temperatures. Perhaps that’s why I kept finding myself looking at this small 12″ x 16″ painting that has been kicking around my studio for awhile. It’s a simple piece inspired by a bouquet that a friend had picked from her garden in Wellfleet, MA. I was also giving it a second look after getting the announcement for a Jane Freilicher exhibit that’s coming up at the Tibor De Nagy Gallery in New York. Her pieces resonate with me in there simplicity of subjects and painting techniques.
Botanical Garden was created as a companion to the Octopus’s Garden. The painting was inspired by both the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens and the Myakka River State Park in Florida. Warm weather will be here soon…
