This was a commission. I was asked to do a batik painting of someone's father who lived in France. He was an avid gardener who loved spending his time in his greenhouse. He was most proud of his tomatoes. He had just retired and this was a present from his daughter to wish him a happy retirement.
I love doing pictures of greenhouses. In this batik I tried to capture the light on the plants and man's clothing as the sun shone through the panes of glass.
