This was the setting of where I painted from 10am – 5pm Saturday. It was the backyard of a 1920’s 2 acre estate (originally 6 acres) that was restored to it’s former glory. It was the official meeting place for the Croquet Society of Avondale Estates. Very, very beautiful. I felt like Monet getting to paint all day in a garden. This photo does not come close to capturing the many gardens, adorable potting shed, 1 bedroom cottage, coy pond, nesting owl and fig trees I painted near. Oh my! The owners did absolutely everything themselves and it truly took your breath away. I got to meet so many fabulous people and painted a garden scene which I will put online as soon as the finishing touches are done. An unbelievable day. One I was truly grateful to have had the honor of being a part of.
