   In response to our “Inspiration Close at Hand” simply call for paintings established in artists’ gardens or other personal areas, we received these five pictures from artist, George Van Hook. Even though inspiration can be located far and huge, many of us have discovered “diamonds in personal backyard”, specially all through the confinement of the pandemic. There can be great artistic positive aspects to painting a additional intimate and personal globe throughout the changes of mild and time.

We’ve lived below for nearly 30 five years, and from the very starting it was our intention to make the encompassing landscape a haven  for portray. That, coupled with the delightful presence of our individual a few daughters, and with their many mates, intended that I would under no circumstances lack for subjects or versions!
