|Doug's painting of the always popular Blue Door and Sun - every artist who has visited Anna's Garden has painted this scene. It's not mandatory - it only seems that way.|
|Nora's painting of the Blue Door from a slightly different angle than Doug's.|
|Susan caught just a bit of the Blue Door in this unfinished painting from a more oblique angle than either Doug or Nora.|
|Lois' annotated painting of the Blue Door.|
|Kathy's painting of the Blue Door (looks like the Sun is checking out the lizard out of the corner of its eye in this one.)|
|Leslie's finished painting captured the exuberance of Anna's garden.|
Getting away from the architectural theme (which is difficult to do here) was ...

"Always a treat to paint there." Dick
