Girl in the Garden
Girl in the Garden, oil on 24×36 gallery wrapped canvas. I painted this for the cover of a friend’s book. My friend is an educator and author and her book is a compilation of her blogs on spirituality and healing. Her approach is curative and I’m a big fan of her work as I think she has true insight into what it means to be a woman and an African American. I thought the Girl in the Garden painting was ideal but it wasn’t the painting she had in mind for her cover. She chose another of my recently completed works, ‘The Light at the End’. Considering her goals in exploring spirituality and healing, I couldn’t argue. You can see the book cover here or access the website of Kimberly A. Collins.
