St. Francis Garden
this is one of my favorites from my archives, the painting is 12 x 12 and framed in gold in my studio. A garden in Santa Fe, the shadows on the wall and the surface of the pot with the tile nicho of St. Francis and the petunias was too hard to resist painting. Sometimes on travels, there are scenes that just appear like this and I was glad to have my camera with me. Lighting in the evening is fleeting and dramatic, and we were walking through the city and came through this hidden garden on the way to somewhere else.
