Collectif Creativity: 12Mar2023

by Susan Irving

Thinking of spring. This painting is called Behind the Gas Station. It is about a vacant lot I noticed behind a gas station. The gas station was not a terribly attractive place. The small field behind it would have been considered just scrub, a wasted field. But I saw so much life in that field: daisies, clover, purple vetch, butterflies, grasshoppers and all kinds of other insects. Birds and voles and mice and other wildlife would have found homes and sustenance in this “empty” lot.
