I like gardening but not when I have to fight off mosquitos. I like potting plants but not when it’s 90 degrees by 8:00 a.m. I like doing yard work but only when I have the energy. And this is why my back yard is a mess.
I did kind of tidy it up this morning at 6:30 only to realize I have a lot of neglected over grown plants that are in desperate need of TLC.
Tending to a garden is like tending to a relationship be it a marriage, son, daughter,mom or dad and even God. We have to tend to a garden on a daily basis in order for it to bare much good fruit That saying ” Your Heart is my Garden”, came to me while being immerse in scripture and planting my garden a few years back. I believe God said that to me. So, whenever I am gardening, cooking, making ceramic hearts, heart shrines. I am always reminded of what HE said to me. I love it.
This piece is inspired by that quote.
I am currently working on a mural to be installed at a vacation home in Rocky Point in Mexico.
It is supposed to be ready by the end of the month. I will post more pics as the mural comes together. This shot is a fraction of the size. It will be 10′ w x 24″ h. installed in a stair well. It will be a combination of flat and low and high relief tile.
At the same time I am building inventory for the holidays. All is well.
