Yesterday was the first summer art session that I was able to attend. Missed June and part of July. We went to the Chicago Botanic Gardens and it was lovely. Hot but we were saved by the clouds and the breeze. The robin was there to watch.
The swans walked by to see us.
The gardens are in full bloom and beautiful.
The English rose garden.
Wonderful little places, here and there.
Good morning! Just like soldiers...
all in a row.
So we painted and we drew.
And we drew and we painted.
Here is mine, unfinished of course.
And here' s one of the pictures to help me finish.
My love of nature and love of paper have influenced my love of drawing, painting and making things for as long as I can remember. For me, there is excitement in the visual pleasure I get from copying the beauty of nature. The colors. The gentleness. With my artwork, I seek to inspire and enlighten the viewer.
