Garden Gatherings

The beauty of figurative work is that it captures a moment in time for all time, as in Garden Gatherings (original oil painting on linen, 24 x 20) where a young girl focuses on keeping the cat from jumping out of her arms while she keeps the basket of flowers from tipping onto the ground.

The young girl is still young, but the half-grown kitten is enormous — a 20-plus-pound giant that decided he doesn't like the other cats on our farm and has set up informal camp at our neighbor's — maybe the neighbor's habit of barbecuing fresh caught fish and tossing bits to the kitty has something to do with this.

Garden Gatherings is available as an original at OC Designer Source, a print of varying sizes and prices at Steve Henderson Fine Art (prints and gifts), as well as is open for licensing purposes through OC Designer Source.
