Yard painting

This is the view off my deck.  The path leads up to my rose garden and my husband Jim has worked so hard this year to keep all the balls in the air and the yard looking great, even through all the heat we've had.  I've painted the deck with a rocking chair on it and it is in the current offerings on here, so I thought I'd move about 10 feet and paint the next portion of the yard.  When I get to the rose garden, that should be fun because I have an antique sink in the middle of it.  I know it sounds crazy, but then you must consider the source.  I like the sink and I didn't have room for it in the house, so I put it out there.This is close up of the very unfinished painting.  I will continue working on it and post it when it's finished.  I think it is so interesting that a painting can look so flat until the highlights and detail work are added.  On the left the trees started looking really interesting once I added those touches of bright green blades of grass at their base.  Painting is so therapeutic for me.  It also helps me see things and look at things more completely.
