“At Longwood Gardens” is the name of this painting created when I was living in Wilmington Delaware. Each January to March, I would visit Longwood Gardens regularly to sketch subjects for floral paintings. Outside the staff entrance to the greenhouses, leftover plants would be assembled in the most charming combinations. They never failed to please the many visitors.
Looking across the fern floor through tree ferns and orchids. The flooded floor keeps the greenhouse humid. For gala evenings, it is drained and tables are set up for dining. This is dining with a difference!
PS I will be creating floral designs and speaking at the Walters Art Museum in Baltimore MD on April 5, 2013 at 11AM. I’ve cut and pasted the information here. If you are in the area, I’d love to see you there!
