After and Before. Working from the homeowner's photo of their garden, I applied my own creative version to give a painterly effect. My vision was to focus in on three elements: the pond, the trellis, and the flowers to the right. Settled for two and a fraction out of three.
On July 13, I will be participating in the Tri-Village Garden walk, selling my garden themed art work in this very space. While I cannot divulge all the details of the garden walk at this time, this spot will be the second stop on the walk, which is a collaborative event between the Tri-Village Garden Club, Arts in Bartlett, and the Village of Bartlett. This is a fundraising event, and a portion of all sales will be donated to Arts in Bartlett.
I am looking forward to working with the homeowner as the garden blossoms in the next couple of months (this image is from last June, early in the morning as the sun was coming up). Hoping there's some koi in that pond!
