A Painted Garden...

Filoli
Quiet Respite, mixed media, 2015.

The art of the garden is, for me, an endless subject of personal fascination.  I adore visiting and touring gardens of all styles to see the work of inspiring designers.  Every space is unique and seems to possess a different ambiance based on the plant choices, lighting, climate and natural topography that is a part of the environment.

Autumn in the Olive Grove, mixed media, 2015.

Lately in the studio I am drawn to expressive art techniques and textural materials as I experiment with landscape paintings of the garden.  Since nature is central in much of my work, celebrating different gardens that I have enjoyed visiting over the years is a delight and a challenge for me as an artist. 

These two mixed media paintings are of Filoli, in Woodside, California and were selected to be shown there as a part of the exhibit Seasons of Filoli which runs from September 1 through October 25, 2015.
