|Painting the Perennial Garden at Bon Air Rose Garden in Arlington|
Finally my favorite time of the year! I adore spring and all it's glory, particularly flowers. Along with wanting to get my hands in the dirt and plant new things is the desire to be out painting all that color and light. We have been having so much rain (pouring as I write) that I haven't been out and about as much as I would have liked. However, last Friday the sun blessed us from time to time on a mostly cloudy day and I was able to join friends from the Washington Society of Landscape Painters at the Bon Air Rose Garden in Arlington Virginia. The roses were extraordinary but the textures and intense colors of the perennial garden lured all five of us.

I would love to do a large, studio version of this one. Perhaps 30x30?
