Garden in May by Maria Oakey Dewing

Oil on Canvas, 23 5/8 x 32 1/2 inches, 1895

I hope you had a wonderful holiday weekend. We enjoyed our weekend which included lots of grilled meat and vegetables, homemade apple pie with vanilla ice cream, and watching late night fireworks.

The painting above shows an intimate view of an outdoor flowerbed. I love how close we are to the subject and how the flowers extend from the picture plane. The flowers don't seem static or stationary but vibrant and full of life.
