Gardener at Manito

Gardener at Manito    9"x12"     acrylic   
This is another work from Manito Garden in Spokane, with this "cowboy" gardener. One of the shapes that drew my eye was his hat and the way it's curves repeated in the garden paths. I used a kind of red brick underpainting again here

  10. More beautiful work from Mary. The variety of greens, strokes, bits and dabs of paint here and there...if only you could teach me how to do that! A feast for the eyes.

  11. Very good Mary. I like the strong color and brushwork in your center of interest. A different composition than most gardens.
