Plein Air in the Garden - Day #15

There is a group of Artists that gather to paint every morning
 for one week in June in our friend Joanie's garden.
We all share the same teacher/mentor - Bill Teeple of Fairfield, Iowa.

 Plein Air in the Garden
8" x 8" oil on Panel

Joanie's Garden
8" x 8" oil on panel - SOLD

Both of these paintings were started in the garden but finished in the studio.
I decided to have the same subject with two different approaches.

A palette knife and darker values were used on the bottom painting and a lighter palette
 and a brush on the top painting that was finished for today. 

I had not worked on the top one since July and decided to "finish" it for Day#15 of the challenge.
The second one was sold at a charity benefit in November.
