Over the weekend, I visited a garden. There were lots of good smells and pretty colors that I couldn’t seem to get enough of. So my Dad and I stayed for as long as it took for me to take in everything, twice! He said I was a very good boy. We walked around and around and I sniffed every flower I could. I loved being outdoors!

When I finally was ready to come back inside, my painting studio was waiting and I got right to work recreating what I’d seen. For this small run of four paintings on paper, I kept the focus on the purples, lavenders and pinks of the flowers (great whiffs!) with a light touch of soft green and yellow. I told Mom I need to visit the garden more often and I think I have her convinced that’s a good idea.

I hope you like these paintings!
