Today we will remove hundreds of allium from the gardens; they seeded themselves too freely last summer and though they were showy this spring, we need the garden space for other beauties. We were featured in a stunning 4 page article in the June issue of Sunset magazine and we are greeting many more visitors to the garden than usual so we want the gardens to look just a spectacular in person as they do in the magazine.
In the studio, I am signing, measuring and photographing some of the paintings I created this past winter in preparation for framing them. I am excited about a couple of them in particular because they are looser and more free than my usual work. This painting, called Cloisinee Cabbage and was created from photos I took last summer in my friend's vegetable garden.
