Our Vegetable Garden in the Berkshires

It has been a good summer for growing things here...lots of sun and rain...I take quite a few liberties when I am painting what I see so there really were more tomatoes on the vine? The old sundial came from my Mother's garden...still ticking....  watercolor gouache 22x30" 140lb paper

A Summer Garden in Hillsdale NY

A morning spent at the Simon property with all the Phlox a blooming....I love this old iron gate and fence...a beautiful shade of Emerald Green with all the other greens around it...What would I do without Summer? It scares me to think of without all of these exquisite flowers seems impossible to me...there is nothing like an August garden to make me very happy...22x30" watercolor and gouache on 300 lb  Arche paper
