This original painting is 36x36 inches. People plant flowers to enjoy their beauty or scent and then care for the plant. Some blooms arrive annually announcing what’s to come, fruit or produce. Some flowers are spread by birds scattering seeds and bees help the process by pollinating. Some flowers spring up in tucked-away corners with only the sun and animals as admirers. I don’t have a green thumb, and beautiful flowers don’t live long at my house. But I still enjoy their beauty. I love visiting this garden every time we are in the area. It is called the Flower Trial Garden and is part of Colorado State University. It’s a research project, planted yearly to learn, teach and evaluate how the flowers do in the high plains/ Rocky Mountain region. Beauty that moves our hearts, brings hope, encourages, delights, and intersects with science that observes, alters, corrects, and brings understanding and progress. A good Gardner both appreciates the beauty and knows (or learns) what each plant needs. Adjustments are made, and pruning is done for the better of the plant. We too have a gardener, who desires to prune off dead non-fruit-bearing parts to achieve something that is thriving and beautiful. But unlike plants we have a choice, accept the pruning and care or fight against it.


Acrylic paint, glossy varnish, gallery-wrapped canvas, and wire so ready for hanging.
