Mission Park

A few weeks ago one of the plein air groups met at Mission Park.  It's across the street from the historic San Fernando Mission, founded in 1797.  There is a beautiful garden area in the park where we all found our views to paint.  The fountains, long pergola, fruit trees, and formal, enclosed beds of flowering shrubs were really lovely.  Unfortunately the roses had been pruned but that just made us think of another visit at another time of year.  I'll be there!

  1. This looks like a pretty spot Sherry with plenty of choice. I love how you have caught the light on the box hedge, your purple shadows are always so clean

  2. What a pretty place to paint! Those gardens are amazing. The bright light and the cool of the shadows work perfectly together.
