A Day in the Garden

So I was invited to paint at the Garden Tour for the Scituate Arts Association today and I was initially excited until I woke up and saw the weather which is cold, raw, and misty...great. It turned out to be a great day though and my painting sold! The Summer House which is the subject of my painting is the former garage which is now a guest cottage. The interior is beyond delightful. It is packed with absolutely beautiful things. What and eye for decoration this owner has!

A Southie Street Corner

I challenged myself to paint this view in South Boston. The old houses are so interesting with their sometimes inconsistent decoration and in this case, on a steep hill. Each house is so unique.

Looking down from Garita 11"x14"

When I went to San Miguel de Allende, we stayed at Casa Schuck a couple of times which is at the bottom of Garita which is pretty steep. The last time we went, we booked too late and had to stay at Casa Cordelli whichi is owned by the same folks but is WAYYY up the hill. It was really nice but I love the locale of Casa Schuck...especially when dragging painting stuff along, but I guess that all depends on where you're painting.
