Garden of Five Senses
5" x 7"
Small public garden in North Port, celebrating the five senses... knocked senseless by the worst Florida winter in over a hundred years. I painted the "Painter's Palette" section where the giant purple crinum lilies (crinum Asiaticum) had been cut back. I liked the way the sun made the purple leaves glow and how they stood, still surviving the brutal frost. Many members of the Punta Gorda Plein Air painting group were scattered around the park painting with oils, acrylics, watercolors, or sketching with pencil. The flowerless park bloomed with our artistic sensibility.
