Original artwork description:

I created “Garden Retreat” en plein air last summer during the annual “Artists In the Garden” event, hosted by Union Street Gallery in Chicago Heights, Illinois. The garden I painted, "Jardin Delacroix" in Flossmoor, is quite lovely. I sought to portray it as a peaceful and inviting scene, with a small pond as the focal point. As I continued to work on the painting, I was influenced by the interplay of shade and light in the garden art of the Impressionists. I was recently juried into the Union Street Gallery Guild and was invited to participate in the Twelfth Month exhibit, where this painting was displayed.
Shipped to the U.S. as is, with the canvas mounted on stretcher bars.
For international sales: In order to keep shipping rates low, this painting is shipped as a rolled canvas. The rolled canvas is wrapped around wooden stretcher bars that can be used to re-stretch it after arrival.

Materials used:

Oil on canvas
