10" x 15"
acrylic and ink on canvas
Sometimes the weather changes unexpectedly, like it did recently this spring. In typical Canadian spring season, there was a frost advisory in the middle of a week of warm weather, and the temperature dipped quite low over night. Most of my garden survived (even the tropicals I forgot to bring inside!) but for some reason, the potato vines suffered serious damage. The leaves browned on the edges with frostbite, and the plant as a whole wilted and looked frail. Despite the damage and near-death appearance of the vines, I left them in the planters, and wouldn't you know, they slowly began to bounce back as temperatures went back to seasonally warm.
This frost advisory inspired this small painting - because nature's resilience is incredible! When life throws you a curve ball, and you suffer damage and pain as a result, just think of the potato vines that braved the cold snap during the spring, and hang in there until you're strong enough to begin to really heal. Healing is inevitable, it's usually just a matter of time. If the potato vines can make a comeback from the spring frost, you can make a comeback from anything!
More about this product:
This small painting is mounted on thick 1.5" gallery stretcher bars. It is incredibly light-weight and can be easily displayed by leaning on a surface, or mounted inside a floating frame for a more polished look (but because this frame is so thick, it doesn't need any framing to look good). This product is easy to ship thanks to the small size. Please note that the buyer is responsible for any shipping charges, but the artist will facilitate the process by obtaining quotes, packaging the product safely, and bringing it to a shipping centre at no extra cost. Reach out to the artist directly through the Contact page for any inquiries regarding this piece.
*This is an original painting by Tania LaCaria, there is only one in the world.
