  1. Goodness gracious, John! What a beautiful painting and a tribute to Thea’s lovely garden. The colors are perfect, the clouds look like they’re framing the garden and the texture is what I always love in your oil paintings.

  2. Thea tends her garden with love and pleasure. The laying out with flowers, trees, and shrubs making a beautiful display. The steps and even a place to sit and enjoy. Glad to see a beautiful cloud shading it to keep the flowers from withering. Love this one very much.
