Secret Garden


10X10"
Oil
Canvas Panel

My grandmother's velvet shawl was the inspiration for this painting. It is a shawl that my Uncle brought back with him from Japan. When I was a little girl my greatest honor was to wear it when I went to a movie. It probably looked ridiculous because it is quite long...but I felt like a princess!

Great color harmony as in all your work.

Really lovely. The purples and coral look great together. Love your story about wearing the shawl!
