Went back to the garden to do some cleaning up and overall tending on a different day.
Decided to try warming up the green. Tried to brighten up the flowers so they'd pop to the foreground. Played simultaneously with a second canvas and a different interpretation of the same scene. Had fun and got into enjoyable flow moving back and forth between the two.
The garden feels a little less contrary now. Yay!
Still, something about both paintings brings plastic tablecloths to mind!
Here's take #2.
