JCCFS – rhodedendron gardens

We took a field trip to the rhodedendron gardens in Hiawassee, Georgia and painted there. I picked a little flower bed with hostas and lots of texture. There was a very pretty light-colored varigated ivy tumbling over rocks. The trouble with this was that everybody wanted to stop in front of me and admire it and discuss it. I concentrated on the hosta so much that I missed doing the rest of the painting. I was so sunburned I got hot and disgusted and quit. But this is one that I think I’ll go back and work on.

I took photos of all the scenes I have worked on so that I can work on them at home.

I have a suspicion that I am not going to enjoy painting in the park, as I had planned to do in Greensboro. The people will drive me crazy.
