This is the location at the entrance to Magnolia Gardens where I painted the alla prima (all at one time) plein air painting pictured above. It's one of my entries in the art show at the Winter Garden Festival starting this Sat, January 19, 2008.

My inspiration for this painting was the striking effect of the contrast between the bright red pyracantha berries and the weathered garden gate column. I also liked the diagonal line the tops of the ivy covered fence posts made across the painting leading the viewer's eye to the center of interest at the gate column.
