This painting feels as though it is two paintings in one, the bottom layer was a warm, complicated, and Intertwined garden, and the top layer was that of a stark cold outline. I was listening to the book Winter Garden by Kristin Hannah when I painted this painting. The book itself Invoked feelings of cold and disjointed relationships, yet under it all was a warm sweet book about what it truly means to be a family. I feel as though my exact feelings on this book were portrayed on this canvas. Cold exterior and warm interior. I fell in love with this painting the moment I put the second white layer on top.
