I let the spinach go to seed...

The spinach has come and  gone in my garden, but I have an envelope of little seeds to plant again soon. I started this painting about a month ago when the spinach was reaching tall and going to seed. Oh, I love the cycle of the garden.

I've tried something new with this painting, incorporating a small drawing on paper with the acrylic painting on canvas board. A bit of collage, painted backgrounds AND plants - I know, I'm getting really crazy over here!

I hope your garden is humming along!


  1. Oh I love this collage! I'm missing my garden this year as I'm between places, but this reminded me a little how much I love the process. Thank you!

    1. So glad you liked it Sera! I, too, love the process of gardening and the constant change. I find it so comforting and reassuring.
