Painter at the End of the Garden

Last Friday, after finishing ‘Because of the Gardeners,’ it was still early. I looked around thinking that I could at least get a good start on a second piece.

I noticed how the walkways led to my friend, who was painting at the other end of the garden. I also thought the people strolling around, admiring the flowers in the center of the boxwood hedges, added a sweet touch to the scene. I got to work, and put in the basics of the people, building, sky, and hedges.

I overlooked taking a photo with my phone. So, this morning, when I got back to working on this, I felt little obligation to show the actual garden. Instead, I worked to make my friend the center of attention by changing the color of her clothing and easel, darkening the walkways leading to her, and adding in the smaller person in the center left.

    Sally or Sarah,   I really love this one.   I like The cube-shaped hedges, and the playfulway you paint, especially the painter in white.   This is an inspiration to me.   I now see the value of blogs, which i didn’t realize until I saw yours.                                                          Thank you,    Laura

    • Thank you Laura, the blog helps me think about what I am doing. I notice that it has become something of an ‘art friend’ for me, a way of developing an internal dialogue about whatever I am working on. It seems to be a device that pushes my thinking.
