Back Street Views

Found this restaurant garden while I was walking around. I loved seeing in through the gate. While I painted one of the waiters kept coming out to look at the painting, finally bringing an old lady with him. I think she owned the restaurant. They loved it.
This is a typical back street view with laundry and flowers.


  1. OH MY GRACIOUS! UTTERLY DIVINE! Like looking in at secret gardens!! STUPENDOUS!

  2. I agree with Lin. Joan you are outdoing yourself. I love the composition. And yes Lin is right, just like looking into a secret garden.

    All the best to you,

  3. These are just gorgeous! Lin said "secret gardens" and that was my first thought as well...

  4. so inviting Joan -- I hope you're having a wonderful time!
