Backyard Garden, Charlotte, NC

8x10, oil on canvas panel, Daily Paintworks, 95.00

For several years I participated in Painting in the Garden, a little extra added to spring garden tours sponsored by the Mint Museum Garden club.  The houses were stately and the gardens extensive.  Most of the owners just loved gardening and had done most of the work.  Since I was right in my
element, also loving gardening, I really enjoyed painting in various places.  Almost all my paintings sold, which was also fantastic.

This painting is from a photo I took from one of the houses and gardens.  The porch umbrella was black, but I changed it to a more vibrant color.
