what spurs growth? and the color and diversity of a summer garden... especially in winter when all is dormant and waiting for the warmth of summer...are they holding secrets??...

Nice one, matey! I very much like the poetic intention behind this. It adds an infinite amount of tone to the experience to be mulling over such a concept, like having a glass of wine at an exhibition. It's taking charge of the presentation in a way. Later when it is bought and hung elsewhere, that's on them to set that up. But this shows it off nicely and draws me in to further conceptual musings wandering around this garden of potentiality.

Personally, the first thing that had come to mind when looking, even before I read your comment was Cyd Charisse in Central Park at night (can't recall if it was Fred Astaire or Gene Kelly who she was with). Love is part of that expression and potential both in paintings and certainly dances of that kind.

Were a whole garden buried inside one sleeping seed, this would be the inside of that seed, perhaps the dreams therein.

I hope a buried corpse is not among the secrets of this garden, although it may be an agriculturally favorable one! :eek:LOL:o I absolutely love this painting where the black of a winterly dormant, but still fertile soil is protecting and growing underground all the colorful plants, vegetables, flowers and fruits which will sprout later in spring.:cool::):):):)

Love your new avatar..you must have had fun with that!... thanks for you in depth analysis of this..I think that was Cyd and Gene Kelly...but not positive... glad you found sustenance in the garden of potentiality!...:cool::cool::):)
