At the Garden

"At the Garden"
10" x 10"
Oil on wrapped canvas
I had wanted to paint this scene that I photographed at the Botanic Gardens a couple of years ago, but never got around to it.  Now I know why I shied away from it for so many years.  There are just too many colors, textures, leaves and light patterns in it to be a successful painting. I could paint until it's about an inch thick and still not reach my goal.  I'm quitting right now before I suck the last breath of life out of it!
