A Garden of Dreams

Cynthia Hart's avatar Cynthia Hart

I have lived in Michigan most of my life, though I currently live in Tennessee. I set aside my dreams of being an artist for many years, and instead my yard became my canvas, and my flowers became my paintings. Over the years, I had let my artistic confidence dwindle away, but the ideas for paintings never did. It took moving away from Michigan into a depressing rental with no funds to plant flowers, that I found myself missing my gardens so much that I picked up my brushes again. Not only have they brought my garden back to life on the walls where I live, but they have brought my artistic dreams back to life as well. I am also a teacher, and every day I am with children, I try to impress upon them the importance of holding fast to artistic dreams. To never set aside their paintbrushes, or dancing shoes, or whatever artistic passion they may have. My paintings are acrylic on loose canvas, and I originally intended for them to be enjoyed on outdoor patios or garden rooms.
