Friday, our local group of artists painted at Inez's house in Roswell. She has such lovely gardens filled with ferns, geraniums, hydrangeas and wildflowers. The gardens have a Japanese feel with a beautiful little bridge over the creek. She told me that she designed the bridge after a trip to Alaska. She had seen interesting boats in a local museum there and made a mental note of how they scored the wood to make it curve. I have included a close up of the detail above. Since she is 90 she doesn't get out and do a lot of the heavy work anymore. I did see some begonias that had recently been planted! We had such a nice relaxing time sitting and painting in her gardens. I commented on the little statue and she told me it is called a "Moonwatcher". Love it! I started a watercolor of the bridge and plan to so several more.
