I wanted to share with you Garden Art enthusiasts...a painted garden! I painted this for a venue in Phoenix and was the most fun project! I have a client that is thinking about letting me go wild in her white walled back yard. PX I hope so. It will last at least 5 years, even in the AZ Sunshine. Then, like anything painted, it will start to fade but hen it looks charming, like an old mural for Europe.

I hope to duplicate some of this on my own balcony when it cools off. The manager of the apartment said it's fine as long as I repaint before I move. Which will likely be a long time since I don't want a yard until I finish school.
