This is an example of art imitating life.
The cropping of this piece is no doubt inspired by my hours of hedge trimming (okay, one hour, my attention span for all things other than painting is not so long - unless you are a porch in need of painting which by the way is also still a work in progress, I am stuck on the railings).
The painting looks a lot better than the shrubs. Trust me. I should stick to what I know. And right now I know I need a chainsaw to finish what I started outside.
