HS Clay House

I loved showing my mom Augusta for the very first time - and staying here at this Bed and Breakfast was a special treat!  She missed our original bridal party outing here, so I wanted her to get to experience it, too.  We had a lovely time here in this beautiful, historic place, visiting in this garden. Going out before breakfast, the early light was so appealing, I just had to paint.  Choosing ink and watercolor, the sketch came together quickly.  I was able to drop in a little color to suggest those floral masses, leaving the areas loose and lively.  I finished early, but not early enough to do another, so Mom and I went in to breakfast.  It was delicious, and it was fun to visit with our proprietor over common interests.  Who knew she was collector of plein air paintings?!  So happy this painting will remain at the HS Clay House, and happy to have made a new friend in Augusta! Painting number 4254 in 4254 days.
