This month, we are sharing the work of one of our botanical artists, Rebecca Spangler. Enjoy!
"Red Echinacea" by Becky Spangler"My sister grows different types/colors of echinacea in our back yard. I thought they would be a challenge to paint. It was more of a challenge due to my clumsiness. Twice I managed to flip my brush on the painting. The second time it was loaded with red paint.... Juliet Kirby [Judy's note: Ms. Kirby is an Adult Educator at Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens] came to the rescue - she helped me remove some of the red paint and work the rest into the painting." [Judy's note: and what a wonderful outcome!]
