"Misty Morning Sunshine"

Blue Hill, Maine area

Misty Morning Sunshine, Painting of a Maine summer garden by artist Beth Whitney | DowneastWatercolors.com

"Misty Morning Sunshine" is an original Maine watercolor painting by Beth Whitney.

This painting shows a colorful garden full of pink and white phlox awakens on a warm, misty summer morning. You can feel the dampness of the garden as the plants are nourished by the morning dew while the sun works at breaking through. The rustic picket fence really adds so much to the garden (a bit of structure amidst the fluid foliage).

This is one of my personal favorite paintings.  The reference photo was taken on one of my local garden tours.  It rained most of the day, but it was one of the most wonderful garden days I've been on.

My Garden Paintings Gallery has more lovely paintings of vibrant flowers and gardens.

This original watercolor painting includes a classic double white archival mat and backing board in a crystal clear protective closure sleeve. It's ready to slip into a standard 12x16" frame (not included).

The pictures below will help you visualize the matted painting and give you ideas for choosing a frame. I recommend taking it with you when you go frame shopping so you can test drive several profiles and find one that speaks to you.  I think this would look beautiful in a bronze or wood frame in your foyer or mudroom.
