Fountain in the Trees

The second painting location on the first day of the plein air workshop was Wheaton Nursery on Roosevelt Road. I couldn’t imagine painting right off such a busy road, but as it turned out, it was quite zen-like. The scent of the jasmine vine filled the air. There was some peaceful new-age music playing, and despite being right next to a constant flow of traffic, it was easy to get lost in the painting process. I chose a spot with a beautiful fountain and early signs of fall color. The folks there were so kind and glad to have us – it was a great experience overall.

This painting was also done exclusively with knives. Definitely challenging, but also quite a lot of fun.
