I have had some real bittersweet moments this week. We took my daughter to college last weekend and my husband and I are officially empty nesters. I have had my moments of sadness because, of course, I will miss her dearly. But, I am also very excited at the same time, as she starts her new life adventure, fulfilling her dreams!
One afternoon a few weeks ago we went Winter Park and she and I wondered around the Kraft Azalea Garden on Lake Maitland, during the “magic hour” when the afternoon light has that golden hue casting long shadows and creating a patchwork of lights and darks on the lawn.
This painting was done there. It’s a small work, 8” x 10”, 20cm x 25cm, featuring the exedra, which is a portico with a bench or seats where people may converse, especially in ancient Greek and Roman houses. This beautiful spot is known for sunset wedding ceremonies.
