A Garden in Terrace
Anne and Bruce’s Garden
12” x 24”  o/c
a gift

Sometimes, the best thing about being an artist is that you can escape the bustle of a wedding kitchen and slip out into the garden to paint. I had just such luck on a recent, happy visit to Canada.  The quiet of Anne and Bruce’s prolific garden called me away from wedding preparations - but even the flowers were being whisked away for table decorations as I painted them.

This is the finished painting of that garden in Terrace, B.C., and it is meant to be a happy reminder of important occasion in their lives. I only had a short amount of time to do the study and a limited palate of acrylic paint, so the finished piece is quite a bit different than the study (published earlier, but shown again below).
