House and Garden depicts an intimate view of a residential garden at its peak. Bright flowers, ferns, and various small shrubs fill the stone flower beds. Slender tufts of grass pop up between the pavers that create the walkway to the modest home. House and Garden represents an idyllic scene absent of people and symbols of modern life. The artist even included a small bluebird in the background, further emphasizing the idea of the garden as a place of beauty and respite.
