Art: 'Faith in a Seed' by Artist Patience



A mother shares the wonder of a humble tomato seedling with her child.   Hard to imagine that such a small and seemingly fragile sprout could, with a little TLC, go on to grow and produce a bounty so potentially prolific it might well feel nearly overwhelming at times.  A summer of salsa, sandwiches and spaghetti sauce awaits -- and all from a single, miniscule seed..... 

I am a gardener, from a long line of gardeners.  I can't claim to be the best at it, but digging in the dirt has been a source of enjoyment and satisfaction for me for much of my life.  Over the years I've tried to lovingly instill a passion for gardening within my own children (the planting of 'seeds', both literal and figurative), as my parents did with me .  Time will tell to see if it actually 'sticks', but I'm hopeful...."

The third of four Nibblefest Art Contest entries, the theme for May being 'The Elements: Fire, Water, Earth and Air"


This is a painting entitled, "Faith in a Seed",  and my entry for "Earth". 

"Faith in a Seed"

".....One of four entries by me for this month's Nibblefest Art Contest (NFAC) (~the theme for May being "The Elements:  Fire, Water, Earth and Air") is an original acrylic painting of vellum, mounted permanently onto a 3.5" by 8" reclaimed wooden board (3/4 " thick). 

May's Nibblefest theme, 'The Elements', was quite different than usual.  Being as that there are four classical elements (Fire, Water, Earth, Air), we were allowed to enter a total of four pieces rather than the usual limit of three, provided that each pertained to a separate element.  This is my entry for 'Earth'.
