Why Woman in the Garden? Nov. 16, 2009 – Original Oil Painting Blog by American Oil Painter Daryl Urig

I’ve often been asked what inspired, “Women in the Garden?”

I initially thought the answer was obvious, but when I thought about it, it was not so apparent. This is what I eventually came up with:

I have always loved gardening. My mother shared her love of gardening with me at an early age, as her father had shared it with her. My grandfather gave up his job as a chemist to open a nursery and sell flowers and plants. I can remember riding on his lap on the tractor, steering down the old gravel path, as a child. Even after his death, I helped my grandmother dig shrubs.

My new wife, Robyn, and I have a joint love of gardening, so we decided to make the backyard into our own sanctuary. Doing this, I recalled Monet and his love for his garden, so I made mine in his image.

After we got married, I decided to paint her in the garden. At first, she wasn’t willing to model or particularly agreeable while doing so. I think at first she was shy about being the central focus, but she finally grew into it.

My figurative paintings are not portraits of her. But in the grander scheme of things, the piece are a collective representation of her.
