The Constant Gardener

The Constant Gardener  6"x6"  oil on stretched linen 
I knew I would be painting a figure today,but instead of fishing, he turned out to be gardening. And, the title using 'constant" is apt. Whenever I'm at Manito gardens, I see his cowboy hat bowed over whatever the day's neverending job.

Une peinture généreuse, pleine de vie, prise sur le vif... La lumière vient mettre en valeur le personnage... Votre palette de couleur me plaît...
Gros bisous et un grand merci pour votre gentil commentaire.
A bientôt.

Love this painting! It feels very intimate. You really captured the feeling of the gardener tending to his plants. As always, the foliage and flowers are beautiful.

Very nice. You captured the feeling of a constant gardner well. Toiling all day in the summer heat.
