Allied Arts, Menlo Park, June 21st 2012

Allied Arts is always a beautiful place to paint and on this day we had a record turnout for a paintsite with 25 artists! Here we are all having lunch.

I felt the Allied Arts garden entrance made an intriguing metaphor for self-discovery. The event was enchanting! Thanks again for a fantasy paint out.  Caroline

There was so much to choose from at this beautiful site.  I chose one of the large urns near the entrance. A few years ago the urns were covered with ivy, but the head gardener, Kathleen, removed the ivy and landscaped around them.  The big-leaf green plants are called Winter-blooming Vergenia (if I spelled that right).  A few of them still had there dark pink blossoms even though winter was over.  Leslie

"My third painting is of some of the lovely flowers near the fountain.  I used quite a bit of color on these white flowers to suggest the shadows and texture of the petals."
Another great day of painting with friends. Mary
