Also from the garden show...

The following day at the Garden Show I started out painting this lovely fountain surrounded by blue hydrangeas in a garden designed by John's Landscapes.
In the afternoon I went back to the Circa booth and focused in on this interesting arrangement of antique garden tools and soft peony blossoms.  It really was a nice booth and my favorite at the show.

Completing a finished painting was difficult with all the traffic at the show, so I just approached my paintings as studies and practiced working quickly.  It was interesting working in public and talking with the many visitors to the show.
