Amy's Garden

This is one of my favorite paintings from this summer. I experimented with my block-in, using transparent oxide red and viridian. I painted two small painting that day in Amy's garden. I was determined to paint like there was no tomorrow, since it was my first time painting with Band of Brushes in so long! It was great to see friends.

Amy, a generous acquaintance of one of our members, and a talented artist and quilter, http://duringquiettime.blogspot.com/, invited our group to paint on her property. I guess I was pretty excited to be painting. It wasn't until I returned home that I saw that I had forgotten to wear my glasses while painting! Thus, the lovely, painterly quality! I may paint sans glasses more often!

I love this little painting Pam, especially since I recognize the garden! I love the painterly quality so perhaps forgetting your glasses was one of those happy mistakes! I hope you will always feel welcome in my yard and garden. I'd be thrilled to come home one day to the surprise of you there painting. Really, any time!
