#dailygratitude - gardens of sunshine


Another Summer day

Ablaze with color.

Scarlet, green, and yellow.

Sculptures dance

In bright sunlight.

One with nature’s gifts.

And the Artist paints.

“The Sculpture Gardens”

Oil on canvas

30” x 30”


Commissions and Prints available


The backstory:

A few years ago, I created this painting “en plein air” at the Huntington Gardens in San Marino. Packing in my paints, easel, and 30”x30” canvas I needed to decide where I would set up my outdoor studio. The morning sun was warming quickly. I finally found a cool, shady spot to study my subjects. From my point of view, I could see only a handful of the many sculptures which had been placed in the sculptures garden. As the sun began to heat up the morning, my painting began to blaze with color.
