This large oil painting measures 54 inches by 40 inches in
size unframed and is 59 inches by 45 inches framed. Shown here
is the original canvas painted in the summer of 1997 framed in
its original frame hand made by the artist, Leif Nilsson. The
artwork depicts the path to the artists studio overgrown with
a cutting garden full of snapdragons and nasturtiums. The geraniums
add a touch of pure chroma red to the overall abundant composition.
The artist's cat Calisimo waits patiently for her evening meal.The doors to the studio are slightly open inviting the viewer to
enter the studio to see what else may be in there. Notice the
ships bell hanging to the upper right of the french doors. When
Leif is painting in the garden he often leaves a sign on the door
which reads"Please ring the bell" and when someone is
brave enough to ring it he comes down from the backyard garden
to greet the visitor. This photograph was taken outside of the
studio in front of the doors. Click here
