   In our ongoing fascination with the work that artists create from their very own gardens, we spotlight this week the work of Kaye Franklin. Though inspiration may be discovered far and vast, many people have discovered “diamonds in personal yard”. There may be nice artistic advantages to portray a extra intimate and private world all through the adjustments of sunshine and season. 

   Franklin writes, “I really like portray flowers and I develop most of the flowers which can be inspirations for my work. Most of the flowers are in pots which I can transfer round till I discover the very best composition and lighting. I work on linen canvas panels and largely use bristle brushes. I begin with a wash, very mild in worth, all around the canvas. The colour of the wash is set by the over all scene. I begin with a sketch and design the composition with focal space my first consideration. I work darkish to mild and skinny to thick.”

   “I plant hollyhocks and peonies in my backyard as a result of they’re my favorites and I do love portray them as nicely.”
