Back To The Garden

posted in: Art 2

“Back to the Garden” is an example of my pentimento  pieces. On the day Marissa Guerrero modeled, I brought in a completed landscape, turned it sideways, and proceeded to paint over it.

“Back To The Garden” Oil on Canvas, 16″ x 20″ $980


What a magical, mystical painting session!

As I painted, I felt Marissa merging with the land and the land with her. It was a very mystical experience for me. After the session, I talked with her about my experience and she said she had just recently moved up here from an urban area. and that she was getting more in touch with nature. And as she left, she gave each one of us cuttings from jade plants.  It was like she was sharing the earth’s abundance with us all.

I love that I have signed this painting before saying too much. It’s fresh from the garden 🙂

    Hello Shannon:
    My compliments on a very lovely piece! “Fresh from the Garden” is such a great piece in itself, while showing how one idea can turn into something entirely different. Still, it’s intriguing that nature still remains in the formerly landscaped theme. I’d say you’ve settled in quite nicely and make an exceptional role model for Marissa, as well as, myself as s fellow Artist. Hugs and all the best wishes to you and Marissa in her new journey.
