SOLDToday the Painting Safari was held at Linden Place in Bristol, RI. (Our last one of the Summer!) This lovely mansion is now a museum, and you can take a tour as well as walk the beautiful grounds. Of all the places and things I could paint, I was drawn to this small garden area, with the beautiful green hydrangeas and pink lilies, not to mention the fabulous red, white and blue buntings. Behind the fence was a sort of barn - it looked too lovely to actually house livestock, perhaps it was a carriage house. When all the architecture is white, you have to squint down and look hard for color bouncing from all over, to make the white *delicious*.
A further upside to todays' effort was while I was about 2/3 done a beautiful pug wandered out from some door I couldn't see in the garden area. I was in heaven, as I was missing Paco (I didn't think he'd be welcome there)! And then... I kid you not, a beautiful orange tabby cat strolled out from the same area! I met their owner, and we gushed about pug-love - she even has ANOTHER pug!
Anyway, this painting was one of those that just kind of falls together - with a lot of measuring and squinting! :DPin It
