The National Botanical Garden

Here I am setting up my telescopic travel easel (say that three times fast).  Observe the Washington Monument is behind me. Isn't my photographer swell?  Can you believe that she is only eleven!

What a perfect evening.  The weather behaved and the National Garden is GLORIOUS.  You would think with a name like Mary that my I could make a garden grow...well think again.  I am the worst!   What's even funnier is that not only do I loath gardening and tending to weeds I also hate painting flowers.  So what did I paint?

  1. You are so obviously more inspired and excited about what you are doing the drawings are brimming with beauty and color! I especially love this one and "Our House on PA Ave". Wow, Mary, Wow.- Kara
