Welcome. I am so happy that you stopped by. My garden gate is always open for you to come in and sit and relax while I share with you the inspirations for my art. We have had an unusually cold winter in Southern California - even though today it is in the 70's - over the weekend it was very cold with rain and wind. I love "using what I have and not what I don't have" in decorating my home. Recently I moved the yellow and red vintage Ralph Lauren pillows from my living room to my office. I love the bright colors and felt that they addded warmth to my office - especially on such a cold day - and they were calling for a new painting to go with them.
The day was so cold that Bentley, my Studio Assistant, sat in the living room by the window where the sun was barely streaming in to try and keep warm.
The inspirational pillow.
My blog is The Painted Garden and I wanted the painting to represent all things that I love - Sunflowers, purple and red flowers, my garden hat, and my love of blue and white china, and of course my favorite tea set in blue and white.

Thank you for stopping by. I love hearing from you and sincerely appreciate your visits, comments,
e-mails, and those of you who follow my blog. Please let me know if you have any questions or would like to see me paint something special.
Have a lovely week. Blessings, Erin
