A Pretty Portrait

Hello to you all.  I hope you are enjoying your weekend wherever you are...  I have been enjoying my garden lately.  Much more this year than ever before.  Perhaps it is the towering trees and lush greenery that we planted seven years ago that now provide valuable shade and beauty, the soothing hues that surround the garden, or the perfumed blossoms and fragrant foliage that romanticize the setting.  Whatever it is, our garden has become my sanctuary.  
It is a wonderful space in which I love to paint a pretty portrait to share with you all.  In these shots,  used a few classic creamware pieces to create an idyllic airy setting.
