The Garden

A large canvas that took many, many hours to complete, The Garden grows, births new life, decays and dies all at the same time. Compost fuels nutrients from the dead to the living. Plant, animal and human shapes blend together in a blur of organic forms. In the middle, flying creatures take to the air untethered to the ground but dependent on its sustenance as much as a rooted plant. Humans seed, gestate and are born as do insects, reptiles, and flowers. The same shapes appear in plants and human bodies. Towards the center, a rattlesnake with a golden rattle coils on a wondrous cobra lily Arisaema griffithii. Life and death go on vigorously and beautifully.
