Japanese Garden

"Japanese Garden"   12" x 9"   Oil

This painting was done on location at the Fort Worth Japanese Garden - a beautiful sanctuary within the Fort Worth Botanic Gardens.  Deb and I enjoy visiting often, except when the thermometer reads 100 degrees, which it has for the past 30 + days!  (Below is the front page of yesterday's paper).  

A great blue heron stopped by while I was working, but he didn't stick around long enough for me to include him in the composition.  I think this boy got a little too close for comfort!
