"Misty Morning Sunshine"

Blue Hill, Maine

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.
