Ann's Garden, Charlotte, NC (sold)


16x20, oil on canvas panel, commissioned work

Isn't this a charming garden?  The owner, Ann, did all the gardening work herself.  Those beautiful ivy swags are on the front of the wall and also on the back.  The ones on the front have the roots in the back and the ones in the back are grown on the front--that keeps them steady as they trail over the walls.  The pond has koi and the whole area is shaded by trees.  It's just a perfect spot!

Ann saw my work at an art show at Charlotte Country Day School and commissioned me to paint the garden.  With all the shade, I had a difficult time getting a good photo with enough lights and darks.  Finally I got one with a hint of shadow and just made up most of it.  It was a fun painting project.
