In The Garden

A Collection born out of dreamy leisurely moments spent in formal gardens.
Each brushstroke is impulsive and deeply saturated to boldly communicate the fleeting sun drenched moments of experienced color of a garden in the afternoon. Deep summer hues draw attention to attention to the contrast of light and dark, and Lydia’s insistence that we can appreciate the light better for the darkness, and appreciate the garden of Eden more because of our expulsion.

A eloquent study of a glimpse and the delight in all creatures great and small.

Original painting is completed in distilled water and French watercolors on 300 lb natural edge watercolor French paper. The piece has been custom framed in a elegant silver frame, the painting has been floated just slightly on a 4” premium white matting and a 1/2” shadowbox effect.

A statement piece for any room.

Original Artwork

Original art is the most valuable; the most sought after; the most desired. At our worst, we have stolen, betrayed, and killed for it. At our best, we have humbly cried before it-and it’s changed our hearts and lives and world view and perspective for the better.

In creating, the artist is imparting herself onto the paper. An artist’s hand in creating the work of art mimics our ultimate creator. In owning the original you’re owning a glimpse of the alpha. Lydia’s artwork is created on French watercolor paper with a variety of high quality pigments and brushes that are all collected in striving to imbue her paintings with a sense of the meaning that sits just beyond our gaze.
