I really enjoy working outside. I think gardening is very similar to painting.
With gardening you start by building a fence around the area and getting the soil ready. In painting, it begins with the preparation of canvases. Sometimes I will buy canvases from an art supply store, but I prefer making them myself so I have control of the tightness and smoothness of the surface.
The next step in the garden is to plant the seeds: decide what to plant and put them in the ground. In the studio, you start by choosing your subject and arranging each object until you get a composition you like.
After that is just a matter of time, things begin to appear in both the garden and on the canvas: little plants with two leaves, colors, more leaves, colors turn to forms, and the plant grows until it produces its fruits and the canvas/garden becomes a new world of lines, shapes and colors.
Once all this done it's time to enjoy, time to share, the vegetables with the neighbors and the art with you all.
Here are my new creations:
