“Gardenia” is the name of my most recent oil painting.
It was inspired by a photo I took one warm and dewey summer morning in my backyard.
Nothing beats the fragrance of a large mass of flowering Gardenia bushes.
I hope this calendar is a reminder to you that this long winter we have had will eventually end. Life will again be restored to your yard when the weather finally warms up.
But even better than summer — is the promise that one day ALL will be restored –in the new heaven and the new earth.
In that perfect place, the Gardenia’s will bloom for eternity… not just a few precious weeks. This is what keeps ME going!
