Sit a Spell - Lounging Around in a Tennessee Flower Garden

There is nothing more inviting than a glider in a flower-filled garden, and nowhere I'd rather be on a cool day. I'm home after teaching two back to back workshops in Collierville, Tennessee, this week, and heading to St. Louis in a few days to swing a brush in my hometown with some of my favorite students in the whole world. Lately I've found myself being drawn to landscapes and light, and thanks to the beautiful gardens of my Tennessee hostess, Carolyn, I was able to capture some photos for paintings for some time to come. 

As soon as I'm back from St. Louis, I'll be heading to San Diego, California, but before leaving for these trips, I'm hosting a double double giveaway on my Facebook fan page this week. Check out my page for a chance to win Garden Nook Hydrangeas, a fine art print! I'll be announcing the winner Wednesday night, and may the flower force be with you! In the meantime, my little helpers are taking me to task regarding the excessive traveling I've been doing. As you can see here, AnnieBee in particular notes, "Mama, you got some 'splainin' to do!"
