Haven't posted in awhile. There's been so much going on - most of it just life in general! I am getting ready for a plein aire event at the Kings Gap Nature Conservancy tomorrow. I will be painting on site in the gardens with some fellow artists, and we will also have paintings we've done of Kings Gap on display in the mansion during their Garden Harvest Day festival from 1:00 to 5:00 P.M.

I was working on my 'Down the Garden Path' painting when I noticed one of the other artist's son looking for frogs in the pond. Took some photos, and then worked on this one at home. If you look closely, you will actually see a tiny frog on one of the lily pads!

Claire, this really turned out well. He's going to be tickled when he sees this....his mommy, too.

Thanks, Pat! See you tomorrow at Kings Gap.

Thank you, Kat. It was quite a fun picture to paint.

I don't even know what to say. This is such a perfect rendering of Matthew. My heart melts. We enjoy King's Gap and this is a typical scene by the pond. The Garden Harvest Event was lovely. Thank you for all of the work you put into planning this event and for asking me to participate. - Mary Beth

Thank you, Mary Beth. I really enjoyed yesterday - we were so fortunate to have such a beautiful day, and it was fun to be painting out in the gardens again. I am glad you like this - your boys are such handsome little men, and this was a joy to paint.
