My Favorite Spot at Descanso Gardens & Last Day of My Print Giveaway...



This is one of my favorite spots at Descanso Gardens in La Canada.  There's a bench you may sit at and stare out at the pond.  Some times of the year, the water lilies are blooming in the pond.  At the time I took this picture, there were yellow irises blooming along the bank.  Sometimes there are are dragonflies.  The koi fish come up close along the edge and are so wonderful to look at as they swim along.  

Whenever I visit, I try to spend some time just sitting here and reflecting.  It is a place of inspiration to me.

Today, Monday the 30th at midnight PST, will be the end of my free worldwide print giveaway.  I would love it if you stop by here and enter!

I am linking this post with Inspire Me Monday.

I have an unexpected deadline, so I haven't had the opportunity to finish up my second Degas post yet, but I hope to be able to do so by next Monday.

Thanks Miss Val, Stacy, and Kristin. I love to visit there.

I haven't painted the whole vista, I believe I've painted a water lily from the pond though. There's so much going on, I'm not sure if I would ever finish the painting!
