This plein air painting was published in the Chattanooga News Free Press May 14, in an interview with Scott, Olga, Rena, and myself in conjunction with the Rose Garden Tour in Chattanooga, TN.

Daily Painting 1261 Summer Colors Plein Air Alla Prima

I painted this at Heathcote Botanical gardens here in Fort Pierce. Its oil painted on varnished plywood, you can see the wood grain, it shows up a bit too much to me in the photo, I think the painting looks much better in person. Not too long after I painted it, I had to pack up and go home, looked like rain and it was getting very dark out. Nice breezy day before that though, not too hot. $100.

Agecroft is a very tailored and well maintained Historical Home in Richmond, Virginia's Windsor Farms. If you ever get the opportunity this is a must for any Plein Air painter.
