The Battle

Home maintenance can be overwhelming when we're so busy doing everything else. We battle keeping the weeds from taking over our lawns, keeping the grass from growing too long, eliminating unwanted pests, and creating spaces to relax, enjoy, and play. But even some overgrowth can be beautiful. 

I started this painting over a year ago and put it away for a while thinking of it as a failure. When I brought it out again a month ago, a fresh look re-inspired me to keep going and I'm glad I did. I showed it for the first time at the Broadway Art Fest a few weeks ago and had really great responses to it. It's not my typical white background but sometimes and artist just needs to take a break from the everyday.
