Botanical Diptychs

     The exotic plants- transcendent, fragile, and ferociously resilient- inhabit my Earthly Paradise in my neighborhood: Golden Gate Park! Various garden mysteries, textures, and poignant hues are excellent sources of intrigue. The life of a garden is a vivid reminder that anything of beauty and radiance takes time, care, and devotion to seed, sprout, and bloom. Gardens have long been living cathedrals for the creative spirit. As gentle breezes come and go, capturing light, shadow, and textures proved challenging because of the constant movement and changes.
