Botanic Beauty

Last Saturday met some friends for a bike ride at Old Orchard Road in Skokie and road up to the Chicago Botanic Gardens and back....18 miles! It was a brisk and sunny morning for a ride, but it sure felt good to get out and see the sites, not to mention the good company!

On the south side of the gardens there were these beautiful birch trees that were just sparkling in the sun.  I caught them on film and over the week worked on this painting that I call "Botanic Beauty".  It's a gouache painting on Arches 140 lb watercolor paper and measures about 11 x 14 in size.
