A miniature gouache

3 1/2" x 4"
I painted this miniature gouache painting of Kingfishers for an upcoming miniature exhibit. Little paintings take some patience with little brushes!

Norfolk Botanical Gardens

The other day I took some time to visit our local garden and check out the butterfly house and just have a walk around the garden and enjoy the plants and new gardens areas. It lifts the spirits and provides inspiration for new projects! Of course I headed straight for the butterfly garden.
There are picture frames throughout the garden. You can  have your picture taken and then send it to our art museum, the Chrysler Museum, where it becomes part of an exhibit called "Frame Up". That
exhibit is part of another exhibit called "The Artist's Garden: American Impressionism and The Garden Movement, 1887-1920". It's a great exhibit. I would highly recommend seeing it!
