Spring in Baxter
This is a neighbor's home that has gorgeous gardens and landscaping. I was looking for a scene to paint and picked this one. I wanted to paint the other side of their house, but it was completely in shadow in the early morning, so I had to quickly pick a new scene. I was happy that I completed most of it in "plein air", got the perspective fairly accurate, and only had to do some minor touch ups at home. Their daughter is sitting on the porch and I hid the names of their two boys in the painting. This one was fun to paint!
