Curbside Profusion, 10 x 8" Oil on canvas
©2009, Helen Read
The story behind this one is simple - I saw this beautiful profusion of plants and grasses with many flowers blooming along the merchant district in our town! It caught my eye and my imagination because of its ... well - pure abundance! Thus the painting! I loved the shadows that fell and the many textures and colors. It was a little challenging getting all that chaos organized onto a canvas, but in the end - I think it portrays what I saw and enjoyed fairly well!
