Morning in the Garden

William Bukowski's avatar William Bukowski

This is an oil painting of a garden view in Mankato, Minnesota. I have been working with images of this garden from life and also from digital images and memory since 2004. My goal with this painting is to create the experience of being in this space on a beautiful morning. The garden imagery is part of an ancient tradition of projecting an ideal space or a kind of paradise. I want to invite the viewer to enter in this search for paradise.
