Artists at Descanso Gardens and Progress on My Poinsettia...



On a recent trip to Descanso Gardens, I saw some artists painting from life.  This one is by one of the Japanese shinto lanterns!


I'm a bit slow, so I tend to paint from photographs.  It still inspired me to pick up my paint brushes when I went home though.  There were quite a few artists there doing this that day, I tend to think they were there as part of a class.


Here is a work in progress view of my poinsettia painting.  I definitely think I will be getting it done in time for Nibblefest!
