Before you act, listen. Before you react, think. Before you criticize, wait. Before you pray, forgive. Before you quit, try. ----- Ernest Hemingway

Garden Inspirations


Welcome, I am so happy that you stopped by. We are having a cool day in Southern California with a touch of rain this morning. The perfect day to have a cup of tea. Come join me and Bentley, my studio assistant, in the garden and we will look for inspiration for a new painting.

I poured a cup of hot tea just for you.

Looks like Bentley is ready to look for inspiration.

Finding Inspiration . . . . .

I picked up a bouquet of flowers at the Farmers Market this morning.

Here . . . . .

And picked the last of the Foxglove blooms

This year my Foxgloves did very well in the garden - I found a shady place to plant them and they loved the location.

The Foxglove blossoms are beautiful and look almost transparent. The plant is poison so I always plant them in the front yard where Bentley can not get into them when he is looking for inspiration.

There . . . . .

I love putting garden hats and garden tools in my paintings.

Everywhere . . . . .

Now that we found our inspiration and I put together my composition, let's take a look at the finished painting.

Thank you for stopping by. I love hearing from you and sincerely appreciate that you have taken time to follow my blog and leave me a comment. If you would like to see me paint something special or have any questions, please leave me a comment or send me an e-mail.

Have a lovely week. Blessings, Erin
