This painting was done at an Art with a Twist class at the Red Cockerill Gallery. I was fortunate that I was Ann Cockerill's only student that day so I got a 1-1 class. It was a fun painting. We used thick acrylic paint applied with a wadded paper towel to achieve the tree texture.
In 2012 I visited Smith Gilbert Gardens in Kennesaw, Ga. There was a lovely shady path on the left as you enter the gardens. I loved the shadows. I painted a pastel painting of the path and it sold to a fellow art lover at my show last year at the Cultural Arts Center. I missed the painting and decided to try it again in watercolor. I entered it in the Red Cockerill Gallery show in August 2013 and it won one of the judges special awards.
