Description

This is a print of my painting of a key and ivy on a library card catalog card for Frances Hodgson Burnett's classic of children's literature, "The Secret Garden." In the book, a girl finds a key and uses it to enter a hidden secret garden.

The print is done on ivory card stock paper to replicate the look and feel of card catalog cards, which librarians typed up on index cards. It measures 3 x 5 inches, the same as a real card. The print ships in a clear archival sleeve tucked into a protective cardboard photo mailer.

My painting was inspired by this passage in "The Secret Garden":

It was the lock of the door which had been closed ten years and she put her hand in her pocket, drew out the key and found it fitted the keyhole. She put the key in and turned it. It took two hands to turn it, but it did turn.
And then she took a long breath and looked behind her up the long walk to see if anyone was coming. No one was coming. No one ever did it seemed, and she took another long breath, because she could not help it, and she held back the swinging curtain of ivy and pushed back the door that opened slowly – slowly.
Then she slipped through it, and shut it behind her, and stood with her back against it, looking about her and breathing quite fast with excitement, and wonder, and delight.
She was standing inside the secret garden.
