A day in our blooming garden


For today's Painting Party Friday, here are two small watercolors straight from our garden. Yes, I did run around outside in my pajamas cutting flowers like a crazy person before class, but it's worth it. LOL. I love painting our garden's colorful blooms.The first is of our rose bushes next to the shed and the second, is our magnificent blue hydrangeas. This week, I tried something different and just painted and did no sketching at all. I'm trying to be much more fluid in my painting. I included some photos of our garden shots so you could enjoy them too.
Hope you can visit a blooming garden this week.
yours truly, gerri

  10. Gerri, your garden is as stunningly beautiful as your home interiors. An inspirational garden to say the very least.
    Your paintings do have that beautiful fluidity to them that you were aiming for. A real sense of gentleness and serenity.

  18. What a great garden. It looks very clean. We have too many plants all over the place. It's like a hidden jungle over here. From the street, you'd never know what lies in the back. I love it though and also your watercolors. Great work with the flowers. Nice photos Happy PPF!
