Agave Paintings by Cathy Carey

My garden in Southern California where the drought has made itself a home, used to be lush with Mediterranean flowering plants! Once we started water rationing, I redid my hilltop garden to be a succulent haven. I have Agave, Aloe, and every kind of succulent you can imagine!

While I was designing the garden, I imagined what it would look like to paint so I arranged things in combinations of color and texture to make exciting painting compositions. This is not an original idea, I was inspired by Giverny – Monet’s beautiful garden home in northern France where I spent two weeks painting in 2000.
