Watching My Babies Grow In The Mystical Garden, 2014 I love all inclusive resorts. I love palm trees. I love warm weather. I love collecting shells on the beach. I love warm and sunny weather. I love flowers because they are beautiful. Flowers come in vibrant colours. Palm trees are only seen on hot vacations. Frances Laube speaks about being inspired by palm trees and southern landscapes. The mystical garden is like H’Art of Ottawa’s studio where her art practice is watched over and she is blooming. The flowers in the garden are like people. We all grow, create, and think in different ways just like the very different sizes of flowers. To Laube, the most important thing is community: no plant, artist, or human can grow and survive in isolation. To be able to create this idea in art is a wonderful and expressive way to share her ideas. H'Art of Ottawa http://www.hartofottawa.ca/
