Garden Variety Color

"Garden Variety Color"
6" x 6"
Acrylic on canvas panel
I was at the Chicago Botanic Gardens on Sunday with my Sunday morning guys. We found color everywhere!  And I'm going back to paint there again on Thursday with another group of friends. I'm thrilled to live so close to beauty.

I started this acrylic and palette knife painting the way I would normally begin a traditional oil painting… blue sky… and when I got to the color, I realized I should have come with black panels.  On Thursday I will!
