It was almost two years ago that we painted at a nursery in Pasadena. I posted that watercolor in The Nursery! I mentioned I love taking photos at nurseries. One nursery in South Pasadena, Barrister's, has been a great place for some photos. They've always got lots of beautiful pots and garden statues, as well as unusual plants. I never thought I'd be doing a painting at this location. But recently a paint-out group was meeting in the area and several painters were set-up to paint one of the entrances to the nursery. Well, there was shade and friends to chat with so I decided to choose that view too. With such a busy scene - umbrellas, pots, a rack full of summer hats, sculptures, and plants - I decided to try a gouache piece. There were even a couple telephone poles, which I really like to include. This was a fun piece!
