IF-Cultivate


I've been painting a lot with gouache lately, I decided for the word
cultivate to go back to my textile roots and paint a sumptuous, rich
garden. I lost a bit of the separation of color and depth of color in
the scan but it's pretty close.  

I just added this 2nd piece.  (on top) I have a studio tour coming up
 at the end of April and I am working on a series of early spring gardens,
I did this in one illustrator.

This is so striking. I, too, have done my share of textile designs in gouache. This is a beautiful use of the medium.
