Except for the aquatic gardens, the English garden at the Chicago Botanic Gardens is Linda’s favorite. And in July, it is at the height of its glory. All of its formal lines are slightly blurred & softened by the profusion of plants & flowers: Another example of Linda’s beloved Order & Beauty, side by side!

A different vantage point from English Walled Garden 1, again we see the slight softening of the hard structural edges of the garden. Here the checkerboard pattern of dusty miller & clipped boxwood leads our eye to the bubbling fountain.

When Tom & Linda visited Monet’s gardens in Givery, France in the month of October, they were amazed at the wealth of colorful flowers still available in the Clos Normand. And this painting in particular shows the layer upon layer of texture contained in this relatively small space as your eye moves back into the distance.

Mission Door

Redwoods

Oil pastel

Hiking through the California redwoods, Linda was impressed by several things: the sheer immensity of the trees, the silence, & the late afternoon sunlight streaming down & collecting in golden pools.

Waterfall 2

Pen & ink

The action of the water tumbling over the rocks was the fascination here. Linda used .13mm & .18mm Rapidograph pens. These are delicate instruments & all of the stippling was hard on them. In fact, Linda went through at least 3 of the .13mm pens on this one drawing alone!
