Artist Garden Party Paintings
I am working on a series of paintings that feature an Artist in their garden along with foods and pets they love, title lettering, and quotes. I intend to continue celebrating other Artists; Georgia O' Keeffe, Salvador Dail, etc.. Future paintings for this series will include the Artist's friends.
Vincent's Garden Party
Once upon a time Vincent van Gogh wanted to be known as The Painter of Sunflowers. He painted 12 paintings that featured sunflowers to adorn his friend's room.
Vincent spoke of planting poppies, mignonette, and sweet peas in a letter to his brother.
Lunch at the Louvre would be a special treat! When Vincent met his brother Theo for lunch at the Louvre they could have had Ceasar Salad, Zucchini & Pesto Pasta, and Macaroons.
Frida's Garden Party
Frida Kahlo's Garden at the Casa Azul contained many tropical plants. This painting features an alocasia, banana tree, sweet potato vine, snake plant, and various cati.
This painting also includes marigolds.
Marigolds are placed on the graves of loved ones on the Day of the Dead in Mexico. Their beautiful color and scent are thought to lure the dead back to the land of the living.
