I am really into painting flowers lately: just drawn into all the colors and textures I guess. So last month I took a little field trip to the San Francisco Botanical Garden and spent the afternoon wandering around, discovering new plants, and getting up close.

I generally paint from life, but these images might inspire some abstract explorations down the road.

This area is so tranquil. And such a beautifully landscaped section of Golden Gate Park. I could spend hours wandering around the paths, exploring. I think my favorite might be the Ancient Plant Garden. Don’t the ones above look prehistoric?

I love that shade of green. So many fun things to see in this place, whether you’re right in the thick of it, or sitting back enjoying the long view.
