Niki in the Garden

I was looking through my photographs and decided to paint a picture I took while visiting the Atlanta Botanical Garden last summer. The exhibit featured sculptures by Niki de Saint Phalle (1930-2002), a Paris born painter and sculptor. The whimsical sculptures seemed to be playing in the fountains and hiding around every corner of the gardens. The sculptures were covered in multicolored mosaic pieces that reflected all the colors of the garden. Enjoy!
