A Garden Path

 Stella shared this painting she did for a friend/family member a few years back.
 It is filled with meaning and symbols and is a beautiful piece.

Clematis are blooming in many yards and gardens in
this part of the country and they offered us an opportunity
for painting.

This is Debbie's Clematis, it is matted and framed in gold 
but I had to crop out the frame in order to get it straight.

Carmen's beautiful bloom. We used a lavender
color but it photographs blue.
