Succulent Garden Inspiration

My succulent garden continues to provide me with endless hours of  work and Inspiration! I’ve finished  the winter  re-build of the garden and have been painting scenes from it in oil. I love all the textures and pattens on succulents, aloes and agaves. I use the reality of the plant as a starting point and take it from there in terms of composition and color.

My painting ideas are about things like working in the garden and showing the hands at work.

Reaching out is about neighbors and the hands of the garden reaching out in connection

I love the moon rise in the garden, it is magical and I imagine all the animals that live up there coming out in the moonlight and enjoying the night scene.
