Gardening weekend

Spring is really here! At least, it is warm and sunny and things are growing that weren't growing a few days ago. Here you can see a shot I took today of a wonderful nursery on highway 92 near my home. I love the shadows.

The second picture is the new painting I started today. The photo I am using as inspiration is in the foreground, behind it you can see how much I got done in three hours of hard work. I drew the shapes last week so all I did today was paint green areas. Some of them will be much darker in the finished painting, but I need to get them started so I can see them as shapes, not lines.
