Gardens in Art: NC Artist Mary Jane Haley

We love gardening but we have had a hard time growing flowers as the soil is mostly clay and even grass is hard to grow. We were thrilled, however, after a lot of fertilizing, and adding nutrients to the soil, to succeed in creating this little garden in the back yard. The colors and light were so beautiful one morning that I was inspired to paint it. It is one of my favorite little paintings. You may see more of my work online at Tarheel Gallery.

The Gardens in Art series features garden-inspired work from North Carolina Artists. Mary Jane recently retired from working for a law firm in Washington, DC. She moved to NC to live with her daughter and family in Kittrell, NC.
