Today I am painting at the LA County Arboretum & Botanical Gardens

Wow, what a place this is! It’s hard to believe that I’ve grown up in Los Angeles County and now, live in Ventura County but I’ve never visited this place! It is astounding to see the variety, care and planning they’ve put into creating the gardens.

Off on another adventure

I’ll post even more pictures later. Here is what I am working on first. Then I’ll be back tomorrow! Really, it’s 127 acres of sheer beauty.

Time to add more sass and work on edges and such

Do you know what arboretum means? Woody plants. That’s what it used to be- trees and shrubs.

When I asked for directions from Siri, he asked (haha, I changed Siri to a man), “Did you mean- LA County Arboretum & Botanical Gardens?” Yeah, that one. They had to add botanical garden because it is so much more than trees and shrub now. There are flowering plants, exotic plants and er, crazy looking plants. More later.

Psst, Don’t forget about my demo on Sunday in Santa Paula California, at 963 Santa Barbara St., in the Old Train Depot. We will be on the top floor and the demo will be from 2 PM and go till 4 PM with a nice snack break in between. I’ll even bring some small paintings that will be for sale.

  1. I wish I was that much of an Artist. Thank you for following and keep up the great paint-blogging – I really enjoy your art:)

    1. Thank you Laureen, that means a lot. I just got another acceptance this morning. Pushing myself to reach deadlines has been hard. Your article on procrastination was spot on, too!

      1. Its hard but you did it! Have a great morning😊
