Arboretum Sketch

Where was my head yesterday? I forgot to post something.

This was done last week at the Bayard Cutting Arboretum in Oakdale.
The landscaping there is great...but I also wanted to do a closeup of a few of the flowers.


  1. Joan, your last few posts are simply gorgeous! I know I'm repeating myself but you really are amazing with your garden sketches and paintings! Not only am I amazed at how prolific you are with your artwork but I'm amazed at your stamina! You are always travelling somewhere and it must get tiring sometimes - maybe you are being fuelled by all the creative juices!! You're a great inspiration!!

  2. What Wendy said!! Your close ups are so delicate and beautiful. Wow!

  3. Thanks, Wendy. Some people paint in their studios every day, I paint outdoors.

    Thanks, Jo!!!

  4. Love your flowers Joan! Love this one with the bench! So inviting!
    Agree with our buddy Wendy!

  5. What a beautiful painting, Joan. This would be an awesome advertising piece for them too!

  6. Thanks, Michael!

    Sherry, thanks so much!
