"Wade Hampton Garden View". NFS
This was started en plein air in Cashiers, NC at a private home in the Wade Hampton neighborhood when the sun set and I lost my reference. I finished this with final touches from memory of one of the most gloriously beautiful gardens I have ever walked through. This scene only captures a tiny part of the gardens. This is the view from the back of the house over-looking a valley between several mountains and the setting sun created a beautiful glow. It is my hope to be fortunate enough to return there and attempt a second painting.
