"My Own Backyard"
36” w x 48” h, Mixed Media Acrylic/Oil
“The light was perfect in my backyard so I started taking photos of the plants. I am always amazed by how many colors there can be in one plant when the light is right. I used my photos as references and with a lot of artistic license created my own world. I took care to use my cooler colors in the back and warmer colors in the front. I think the color of the sky creates an interesting mood. Plants and people are my favorite things to paint. I am always wanting to capture the essence of my subject.”
