Rodeo Wagon

"I perhaps owe having become a painter to flowers." - Claude Monet

"Rodeo Wagon"
8" x 10" oil on gessobord

This painting is based on a photograph I took at Descanso Gardens in the suburbs of Los Angeles a few years ago.   Claude Monet would have enjoyed Descanso Gardens ! This little wagon has lost most of it's red paint; I think I like it better that way.   

Thank you for visiting today !


  1. This painting makes me happy just looking at it. The beautiful grey/blue behind the cart is perfect to show everything else in a lovely harmony..

    1. Thank you, Julie. Painting makes me happy and flowers make me happy; I am glad this miniature made you happy too. I enjoy your floral paintings very much.
