Leslie in the Rose Garden

Today's sketch is "Leslie in the Rose Garden ". This is all the artsy progress of the day, just mentally thinking on paper the next thing I'd like to paint. Leslie is a friend of my daughters - we were touring through the Leu Gardens in Winter Park, FL. - one of my favorite botanical gardens!

Hope you had a fun Halloween evening. We enjoyed the young trick-or-treaters in their funny, cute (and yes, some even slightly scary) costumes! I can hardly believe October is gone...and November is here already!

****** For my friends and collectors in the local area (CT, RI, MA) if you have areas that you love to hike in, favorite views, & don't mind sharing this scoop, please pass on the info to me! I love a good walk in new surroundings ....some become favorites that I return to again & again!

I do welcome requests for commissions. Please contact me at for a price list per size.

Hi Lyn! Thanks!! No, I haven't put up any sketches for sale...but I may consider it at some point! I don't do them for every painting, but on those that need some additional thought about 'where I want to go with this', it's like thinking on paper, before I go to the paint.....

Hi Roxanne,

This sketch is gorgeous. I especially like the way you created a background for her. It's abstract but creates a real sense of place.

Thanks for your very interesting comment about my drawing of "twins'. I appreciate it.
