Cinco de Mayo

Azalea Trail at the Overlook

This date is easy to remember and I’ve chosen it to mark the beginning of my blogging adventure.

I’ve been painting the azaleas at Callaway Gardens’ for three weeks at the Azalea Bowl and the Azalea Trail at the Overlook. It has been a long time since I worked in plein air; I usually prefer the controlled environment of my studio, but I’ve enjoyed the challenge of dealing with wind, onlookers, shifting shadows and mosquitoes. The flowers were vibrant and lush this spring, but didn’t last long and I found myself propelled at break neck speed to capture the beauty before me.
