Last winter my wife dug the grass away from the fence. This spring she had me buy some bricks for a border and two large bags of potting soil. She lovingly planted tomato plants, peppers, zuchini and crookneck squash and some pole beans. We’re experiencing the benefits each night with fresh salads with the fruits of her garden.
As a little kid I liked to stand on my head and see what things looked like upside-down. I’m still that way. I love to look at things from unusual angles. This view is from down below and sideways. You see my wife’s tomato plant right next to the chain-link fence. There is a rythm. Each link is one rythm, then the blossoms in a row. The lines on the side of the building do the same thing. You could imagine a child laying on the grass looking at this scene. In the case of this painting, it would begin raining on him in the next few minutes.
