Anna Cook's Mexican Garden, Saratoga June 29, 2017

We are very fortunate that once again Anna Cook welcomed us into her Mexican garden. Not only does her garden have an incredible number of artfully arranged objects to paint, Anna also provided drinks, cookies, and watermelon.  She is very interested in our artwork and when she came around to check on our progress, she also wanted to see all of our earlier artwork in our sketchbooks and journals.

Two wonderful things happened.  First, we had three new members.  Second, two neighbor girls not only admired our work, but ran home and got their art supplies, and with their mother's blessing, returned and painted with us.  We are used to having children admiring our work, think of Hidden Villa and Ardenwood, but this is the first time we have ever had children painting with us. It was a delight.

Everywhere you looked you found interesting objects to paint and lots of artists painting them:
