I went to the Fort Worth Botanical Gardens with a great group of friends and fellow artists today to paint. The roses are really starting to put on a show as they are in my own garden but today I wanted to paint the azaleas which seemed to be at their peak. I liked the way this little sculpture was surrounded by the pink blossoms. These bushes were over six feet tall. This is quite an accomplishment because our soil in this part of Texas is very alkaline and they like acidic soil. The weather was great for painting out and I think everyone was pleased with their paintings. Afterwards we went to lunch and then to my house for dessert. It was a very enjoyable morning and afternoon.
