About a year ago, My Rare One took up painting for the first time. She started with acrylics but then switched to oils at the behest of her teacher. I think she's doing marvelously well at it. This is her latest painting. The first photo doesn't really do it justice, but the second one with the detail of the doorway shows much better how she captured the sunlight pouring through it from inside the walled garden.
It reminds me of that classic children's book, The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett, which was one of my favourites growing up.
This painting is now in my office at work so I can see it every day!
