100 Paintings in 100 Days Challenge
'Inspirations from a Back Yard'
Oil 5 x 7
I love to watch things grow; it is so life-affirming.
You take a simple seed, put it in some dirt, give
it a little water and then watch for that
bit of green to peek above the earth's surface.
The baby zucchinis started to pop out about
two weeks ago in my garden. I could't resist painting this one
with the blossom still attached. Had to do it quickly - it
is amazing at how fast they grow - was away for four days
for the Gettysburg Festival Artist Colony, and some
of my 'babies' had grown to the size of baseball bats!
