Veronica and Hydrangea (in the painting)are the summer elements in Favor Garden. Shizico cultivated these deciduous shrubs in 2015, and since, they blossom from late spring into November faithfully every year.
They are symbols of longevity and loyalty like old friends.
This painting is one of the Summer Bloom series started in 2022.
Shizico lost her beloved dog-son Favor to Wobbler Syndrome after four years of battle with this neurology disease in 2017.
Constant Gardener is an ongoing project in memory of Favor. Shizico started gardening in 2015; she took it as a project to make a garden for Favor to recover. After Favor died, this garden project continued as Favor Memorial Garden in memory of his precious presence. (2015- 2022 ongoing)
Alongside gardening, Shizico started a series of drawings and plain air paintings in this Memorial Garden, trying to keep the blooms and seasons frozen in time.
