Painting of the Week

Painting of the Week – Perennial Perimeter



Like “Through a Looking Glass”, these perennials remind me of how I loved looking deep into the background of a mirror as a child. Have you done that? Instead of looking at yourself, you see the space reversed deep into the room as if you could walk right into it. Perennial Perimeter is a painting of a beautiful garden in Henning, MN. The neighbors’ backyard’s line up and you see much more as the inviting flowers really don’t fence you in.

The perennials grow in clumps. Each plant interlocks with the plant next to it even though they vary in height, proportion and color. The transition of flowers is exciting to explore. Please come see this painting in person at the studio crawl!
