Here at Valle Crucis we have a "Secret Garden" named for the book I assume, and what a great name as we try to encourage connections between " hands on" learning in the garden and course work in our schools. Mrs. Brown in the library could surely get a copy of this great book for any interested class or student. I love the movie and it has great insight into history when England's colonial empire spread across the globe. Apparently the tale has been done on stage. Does our school have any aspiring actors or actresses?
Back in the spring I decided to try to start doing a little art work and got busy on a few paintings. Over the summer I figured the entrance to the Secret Garden could use a little advertising and that's when I got the idea for the painting you see above. It's based on the book cover which I researched on line. I created a digital collage of images and then worked from this to create the enlarged painting. I believe students could do the same. Mural?
Still time for me to mess up this project. I hope not! Maybe it gets finished sometime soon. Keep looking and please enjoy the "Secret Garden"
