Alice's Garden Painting at Home



The garden in winter. (click images to see larger)

We travelled out to Delaware County yesterday with the painting. I helped install it, used Z clips, my favorite, since the art will stay level, and its so easy to just lift it in place, and set on the clips.

To celebrate, my client took us for a fantastic meal at Umbria in Mt.Airy. I have to say it was one of the best restaurant experiences I've had in years.

Garden Portrait in Oils



Almost finished, the final details are yet to be done. This is a commission to memorialize a  wonderful gardener. The perennials are her favorites, not a literal depiction. Shown at their peak, oakleaf hydrangea, hydrangea macrophylla, crepe myrtle, rhododendron, peonies, astilbe, rubrum lilies, mary todd lilies, and beech trees at the rear.
