Zilker Gardens

Zilker Gardens, 6 x 8

This was my first painting back after three weeks.....Plein Air Austin met at Zilker Botanical Gardens last Thursday for a paint-out. Laurel Daniel and I found a (slightly?) cooler spot in the "Prehistoric Garden," near a small waterfall. This gorgeous plant was growing nearby--we didn't see any raptors, but a turtle did stroll confidently by us down this path.

Gorgeous Julie,

It's so wonderful to see your work again. I felt like there was a hole in my visual landscape. Super.

It's great to see your paintings again! I love the mix of warm and cool greens.

I do think that turtle might be related to the previous tenants of that land! :) Nice separation of planes and subtle hint of the waterfall!
