Alamo Placita Park 14x11 oil on panel

I was very worried that there would be no flowers available to paint, but luck was on my side. Although the plantings were not as full as they would be later in the year there still was a lot of color. I painted this in the sun so it has some difficult values. After adjusting them in the studio the painting is complete. When I get better I will be able to add figures, like the gardeners that were there tending the plants. Some of the peonies were beat down after the rain last night but Nancy captured them in all their splendor. Next time I'll try to paint them.
