Bell Tower at the Botanic Gardens in Autumn

I painted this in mid Autumn on site at the Chicago Botanic Gardens. I was high on a hill-actually the same hill I painted the Japanese Bridge from, but facing the other direction. It was an absolutely beautiful day; this time of year every day painting outside is particularly wonderful, because I never know which day will be the last before it is too cold. Prints of this piece are available at Fine Art America. The original is also for sale.

Saying Goodbye to an Old Friend

Blue Squares sold this week, and selling a piece I love is so bittersweet. I’m going to miss having it around and taking it with me to shows. On the other hand…I sold a painting! This one is part of a set of three, so I’ll have to start thinking of something to complete the set again.
