Artist and Gardener

Being an artist and a gardener doesn't always work.
Mary Kemp : Plant Pots in the Greenhouse
oil on board 70 x 50 cms
It's the age old problem , one distracts you from another. If I'm gardening I want to paint what I see and if I paint in my own garden I want to pull up the weeds and water the plants and move and cut back stuff. This picture of my greenhouse I painted some time ago. In my very detailed painting period. I thought of it as I was watering the tomatoes and pulling out the grass in the floor of my greenhouse yesterday.
