This painting is rich with texture and collage. I used organic shapes and colors that could symbolize plants and flowers, overlapping and exaggerating them as needed for a good composition. Near the completion of the painting, I began to see a figure covered with or made from plant material that appeared to be playing a stringed instrument. As I finished the painting, I elaborated on that until I had Garden Music. Can you see the figure? Can you hear the music? What else is there to this lyrical story in the garden?
