End of the Habitat
Acrylic on Canvas, 36" x 36", Ellen Bloom
Seven years ago we completed the building of a garage and studio in our backyard. Ultimately, we ran out of money and couldn't afford to pour the cement for the driveway to the garage and the pad in front of the studio. There was a large mound of earth excavated from the building of the studio that ended up piled in a mound about 10 feet in front of the studio door. We call this our very own "grassy knoll." We've let the rest of the backyard return to the wild. The weeds are everywhere, growing in and around Larry's old cars. One nice thing about our yard is that the flowers are still blooming. We have beautiful roses, amarylis, bougainvillea and more.
Our yard is known in the neighborhood as the Habitat for Small Animals. All of the kittys love chasing birds and mice out there in the wild. It's time to take back the yard for humans. We are now embarking on a remodelling project and the yard must be cleared. Tomorrow, 8 am, the man with the truck and Bob-Cat will be wheeling down our long driveway to clear the yard for construction. Yippee!!!
Take a last look at the Habitat and wish it a fond farewell.
