Girl on Stool - corner of Garden
But as much as I tried, I just could paint the way I wanted -- but I thought I'd post some of my 'opps' and 'tries' to encourage myself to keep trying!!! SIGH!
This is a corner of my entry garden -- a wee statue of a girl reading, my snowball viburnum and Homestead Verbena.
We arrived in Charleston yesterday after a long drive -- weather and traffic were good. Checked into our motel and then headed to the beach for a long, long walk to unwind from the trip.
The Atlantic was warmish to our feet, and folks, a small crowd even at 4:30 pm, were enjoying the water and the weather. We walked for miles it seemed and the salt air, breeze, cries of the gulls and crash of the waves, laughter and warmth seemed so restorative!
We had dinner overlooking the marsh and waterway ... lovely, lovely, lovely -- but no time to sketch.
Today we head to a full-day of gardens -- photos, research, interviews. I hope for a few minutes to sketch ... if not, I'll have a lot of photos and even more memories ...
