The day was spent painting in Renee’s Garden in Keyport, NJ.  I participated in the first annual Garden Walk hosted by the Keyport Garden club.

Clock in the Garden

The large, flat, green shape behind the clock and bird feeders is a huge, old tree covered in English Ivy.  I brought my Color Scheme Game outside and into the garden.  My early childhood influence from the hundreds of illustrated children’s books my mother read to me pulsed through my veins as I sat painting in the middle of a magical, fairy tale garden.
