painted this painting during times of turbulent
relationship changes. It is titled two
gardens. In the center is a flower garden and on the
right is a vegetable garden.
At that time I came across a symbolic significance in that a flower garden represents romantic love between a man and a woman. It is beautiful and at the center emphasis of most of our lives.
The vegetable garden represents the love we give to our children. It is sustaining, nurturing, and nourishing.
Not visible in this photo on the net, but there are six children in this painting. Two small children are digging in the sand at the bench at the end of the path. They are the youngest, and as children they are imitating what they see others do.
On the right, in the back of the vegetable garden are two middle children picking grapes representing that they have learned you reap what you sow.
In the distance in the field are two older children flying a kite. They are experimenting with the unknown, testing the air, the unseen; a representation of God
It was at this time that I realized in an environment of love between parents, and nourishment, our children thrive and develop to understand life, love and understanding of God.
