"In a Southern Garden" at the Thomas Center Gainesville, FL

Spring Blossom

When painting this blossom for the plein air exhibit "In a Southern Garden", I saw a gentleman observing me painting.
After a while he said, "I like that you are painting the flower up close. It's like you want to smell it's fragrance too". I like that.
I also wanted to capture the delicate blossom as it was tossed in the March breeze.
Hope you will visit the Thomas Center Galleries where you will see plein air works by 16 Gainesville area artists. The show will be in full bloom through June 23, 2012.
Be delighted!
Cudos to Tim Malles for all his hard work curating the show.
