Bonsai Tree

Watercolor 8 inches by 10 inches

On Saturday four of us painted at Andy's Garden. The occasion was the garden center's early spring festival. We have been painting at the festival for the past four years. 

Diverse groups from the area displayed their products. Various businesses selling garden related products demonstrated them. A local writer was selling copies of her children's books. A 4-H group was selling home-baked cookies and quick breads. The nearby nature center brought one of their Wild Life Ambassadors, a black rat snake. The garden center was raffling off patio and garden plant containers.

Seminars, lectures, and demonstrations related to gardening were held in the upstairs meeting room.

This painting is of a bonsai tree which one of the garden personnal told me had been planted in the rock about six months ago. I sat on the pavement to get the angle that showed the twisted branches.


  1. Great painting, Pauline. Love the colors, the twisty branches & how you did all those delicate leaves.....what patience!!!!
