Pence Gallery Garden Tour Exhibit

Every year the Pence Gallery holds the annual Garden Tour in Davis. Certain gardens are chosen for their designs and use of native Californian plants in their yards. I had an opportunity to be the artist on-site in two of these gardens.

These two paintings were from one home and were done from photographs. I attempted to paint plein air but the hot afternoon sun sweated my oils that I found difficult to work from. Painting exteriors scenes is something I normally don’t do. I think my approach here became more illustrative than painterly.

These paintings will be exhibited along with other arts done during the garden tour for the month of June at the Pence Gallery.
