Creating “Judy’s Garden”
















I wanted to create a painting in honour of a friend that I strongly admire.  One of Judy’s greatest pleasures is her flower garden, so I decided to call the painting Judy’s Garden, and work from there.

With no direct plan in mind, I wrote the title on the canvas, and then began adding graffiti-like words to describe Judy’s character.  When the canvas was solid with words and colour, I collaged different sizes of the same words in a random fashion that ended up looking like something growing.

After some additional layers of granular texture and colour, we have the final painting.

It is a fitting tribute to a life sown with heartache, pain and trouble, from which grew fruit of beauty, encouragement and joy.
