I Like That One!
oil on linen panel
Another Longwood Garden painting! I was particularly drawn to the woman wearing her red holiday sweater in the Orchid Room. I imagined that her husband was pointing out something of interest, so I titled it "I Like That One!" This was a fun series of two to paint. And if you've never visited Longwood Gardens, treat yourself. They not only have a grand indoor Observatory, but acres upon acres of gardens, trees, a treehouse, and beautiful topiary and water fountains outdoors (which they've recently renovated and have shows with music and lights!). Social distancing and mask mandates are in place during COVID. Please check their website for details. It's a truly magical place all year long.
