Atlanta Botanical Gardens-cloudy midday, 12x16, oil on canvas
I've been visiting Atlanta for the past few days and managed to see their lovely botanical gardens last Friday. It was about 100 degrees and quite hot and hazy, so the photo I took for this painting wasn't ideal. But I decided to paint the scene anyway since I'm always painting sunny scenes. It's a pretty huge contrast from the garden that I painted in my last post, and I must say that although the gardens were very beautiful , I prefer gardens that feel free, loose and a little wild. I think the tight rigidity of the painting above was a reflection of those feelings!They do have a wonderful art sculpture showing there presently called "Bugs". I highly recommend seeing it if you're in the Atlanta area.
