I painted this piece in watercolor. I did this because I really like gardening and sometimes when I’m gardening, I get to spend it with my mom and I really like talking to her about plants. And last year we grew popcorn! And we popped it and we have a secret recipe for popcorn so we sent it to family and friends so they can enjoy it too. And this year we are growing pumpkins. In Shawnee culture, these foods are important because they feed our people.
