shared seeds

Many of our gardens are grown from shared seeds, planting memories of time and place. 

When I make these seed packet paintings I feel connected with my Mother. This one in particular, as she always had something red growing by her window or in her garden.

  1. Been enjoying looking at your lovely flower paintings, very original idea to put the seeds in too. Your mother would have loved the beautiful red flower painting Jan.
