Our Garden

I decided to do some plein air painting today and painted our front garden.  This time of the year we have a multitude of blues, violets and pinks and I wanted to capture some of the feeling of this place.  This is not a great painting, but it does sort of look like our garden.  This painting is 11" x 8" and is painted on 140 lb. cold-pressed watercolor paper.

How can a gardener like me not be totally captured?!! So many species and colors, beautiful and very well kept. Love this painting.

Thanks for your comments, Jane. I also love flowers, as you can see!
