Portraits and Gardens
"Carnation, Lily, Lily, Rose" John Singer Sargent
For me, they just go together. My garden is an extension of my studio, an enormous ever changing canvas on which I paint and repaint as I plant and dig up, move borders and clear out weeds. I am surrounded by it inside my studio and it inspires and calms me. John Singer Sargent was never a gardener himself but enjoyed and painted extensively the many gardens of friends and patrons. In this blog I will be posting about painting, but will also be including gardens and anything else that inspires me!
