Newnan Garden Tour Plein Air

A special treat last weekend.  Many of us got to paint in gardens during the Newnan Garden Tour.    I was fortunate to be in the Umberger garden, which was like being in a "secret" hidden garden.  They have several interesting objects throughout the garden in addition to exceptional plantings and fountains.   
"The Blue Door", a 5 x 7 oil on gessoed panel.    Rendering of the potting shed in the garden.

"Gazing Ball" , 5 x 7 oil on gessoed board.    One of many interesting spots in the Umberger Garden.

Bank of GA art

"Clouds Rolling In", a larger version of a subject I used previously.   This one is 16 x 20, oil on canvas, framed.   The colors are nicer in this one    May try it again in a more abstract version, just for fun.
