This year I noticed a warbler visiting our birdbath. That along with a lot of nesting birds in our garden inspired this painting. On my walks around the neighborhood with my dogs, I saw all the flowers blooming in neighbors gardens and have included the roses, and orchid rock roses and other plants from those gardens in this painting.
This artwork has symmetry and yet the elements don't exactly mirror. I had a lot of fun doing the pepper corns and pepper trees leaves.
