"The Garden Path"
18x24 egg tempera on hardboard, framed $600
Another painting from Heathcote Botanical Gardens, I did this plein air in egg tempera! That is something you don't see happening very often. I had to do a little finishing up in the studio, but I really had fun being outside, even though a little hot.
We are still fighting "Love Bugs" in S. Florida. I heard they were brought here from China to control mosquito larvae, but they didn't like the larvae when they got here. Sometimes you wonder why scientists try to introduce things into our country when it is apparent that if we were meant to have them, they would be here already! We sure do have a bumper crop of Love Bugs this year---wish we could send them back to where they came from.
