Illustration Friday: Garden

14 x 22 - drawing on scratchboard


I had a dream once that I was standing in my garden. It was covered in snow. When I looked down I saw that everything in my garden was rotting. When I pulled up my crops the roots were twisted, rotted, and stunted. I looked up and on the other side of the fence my neighbour's garden was filled with lush summer goodness. Healthy plants. Beautiful soil. Sunshine. He came to the fence and said to me "If you want what I have you have dig deep and take a look at the roots."

This is an amazing scratchboard! About the dream, the garden, remember he who has lush summer goodness will spend his entire Fall going from neighbour to neighbour, exclaiming "are you sure you don't need more tomatoes", "carrots will make your eyes more blue", "but eggplant is good for you", chasing time before it all rots! Be happy for your freedom haha. Really do love this artwork!
