The Garden Bench
8 x 10
oil on canvas
I went to paint in the botanical gardens a few weeks ago with my friend Sabine Higgins. I did this one pretty fast. Then when I brought it home and looked at it, I decided to add yellow pansies into the empty flower bed and I lightened the bench to create more of a focal point. I went back to paint there the following week and all the blooms were gone from the tree but the wisteria was starting to bloom and the arbors were covered with it so I started a painting of it. One thing about spring, the colors and views change so fast that iif you want to paint something you had better do so because it may not be the same in a few days.
