Garden Gifts

Entryway Blessing, 8 x 6, oil on panel, L. Daniel © 2012
Gift to workshop garden host.

I am finally back from my work/play vacation in St. Simons Island, Georgia. The "work/play" idea is an oxymoron, unless you love your work! :) I had a wonderful time but it was impossible to stay current with my technology tasks. The play part of every day prevented me from cataloguing and blogging. BUT... I'm back home now and will finally photograph and post the plein air work I did while I was there. Please stay tuned.

For now, here are a few more demo shots from my workshop...

Beautiful painting, Laurel! I remember that entryway very well, and love how you captured the light. It was an excellent workshop. Thank you for everything.

You're braver than I am to sing karaoke by yourself! Looks like another fun adventure. I'll bet you like being able to take your dog with you since she can stay in your rig. (It looks luxurious--lucky you!)
