This is my post for the April Virtual Sketch Date. I did the back ground first around the blocked in areas for the flowers.
It is a watercolor on hot pressed paper. Thank you to Jeanette Jobson for providing the reference photo of a rhododendron bud from her garden.

- My Amazon Kindle, it is truly an amazing reading device.
- The Mitford series by Jan Karon,a great book series about a kindly priest in a small town,
- Cabins in the woods with porches
- National Parks,especially Zion, Utah
- Descanso Gardens in California in the Spring time
- Santa Barbara's State Street scene
- and of course PAINTING !!
