The Playful Story Behind Linda Gordon’s “Wisteria Whimsy” in the “Let’s Play!” Gallery Exhibition
By Linda Gordon:
Mother’s Day at Hatley Castle
In the theme of the upcoming “Let’s Play” show my daughter and I painted at Hatley Castle on Mother’s Day. We played around mixing colors and taking in the sun and flowers.
I did my best to paint the wisteria, shimmering in the breeze. The masses of mauve flowers and sweet scent was intoxicating.
I heard the brass band playing in the background as I mixed my colors- the deep tone of what sounded like a tuba made me look into the shadows of the foliage and I pulled up a “Jenkins Green” out of my Paint box.
The Green color is just what I needed to make the mauve pop!
As the day wound down I found I had painted two flower canvases. A great place and time to play!
