Late Summer in Lynn's Garden 24"x24"

What a magical, peaceful place Lynn's garden is. A neighbor's chickens enjoy crossing the road and venturing into her yard from time to time as I realized when I turned around and saw the eyes of one of them peering at me through the plant stems! Another time I was treated to a parade of wild turkeys walking through...it's easy to feel far away when visiting her yard.

Thanks Marian, you would love the actual location. Usually, there is a large group of us painting there and we all look forward to a day at Lynns!

This must have been fun to paint! Beautifully done and the colors so soft. That's what strikes me about your art!

Paula Villanova said...

Thanks so much for visiting my blog Sandy. It is such a beautiful place to paint but can be very overwhelming and of course, I want to paint EVERYTHING...Believe it or not, this is a tiny segment of her enormous garden!

Thank you Carol, and thanks for visiting my blog! I love color...and it is an area that of which I am continually building my own deeper understanding.

Paula Villanova said...

...ok, that last comment made no sense...I should really proofread before I send a comment off! Anyway, I am always experimenting with my colors and sometimes it works, sometimes not, but in addition to my big collection of colors, I mix alot, particularly browns and greys. Hope this makes sense!
