Garden Center

Geraniums, Marigolds, Petunias!

Painted at a local nursery this morning... an artist's delight!  Colorful compositions and hundreds of painting possibilities everywhere I looked.  A mockingbird sang nearby almost drowning out the awful piped music.  

Why do establishments have to do this?  Do they think everyone has the same taste in music?  Listening to water splashing in the garden fountains and the birds singing would be enough. Will be painting here often, but next time I'm wearing earplugs.  

Sorry about sounding off on my musical crankiness.  Other than that, it was a pleasant morning and I'm pleased with my sketch.
