A Garden Day Painting



Welcome. I am so happy that you stopped by. My garden gate is always open for you to come in and sit and relax with a cup of tea while I share with you the inspirations for my art. Do you feel that Summer is quickly slipping away? I certainly feel the days are passing too quickly and try and spend as much time in the garden painting as I can while the flowers are still in bloom.




Let's join Bentley, my Studio Assistant, in the garden to look for inspirations to paint a Garden Day painting filled with the flowers in bloom.
Finding inspiration . . . . . .



The Black Eyed Susan are in bloom and I want to add them to the painting.


Red Geraniums are always nice.


Here . . . . .


I love using the little bird cloche in my paintings and this one has been in lots of them.
There . . . . .

It is not unusual for my white wicker furniture to end up in a painting.


Everywhere . . . . . .




The white Ice Berg roses are still in bloom - they have been cut back three times this year and still look beautiful


My garden gloves and shears also end up in a lot of my garden paintings.


The last of the Zinnias are blooming - I will have to paint them next!


"Happy is the one who listens to me, watching daily at my gates." Proverbs 8:34


The completed Garden Day painting with white wicker chair, Black Eyed Susan's, hydrangeas, bird cloche, garden gloves and red Geraniums.
