Unlatch the Garden Gate

L10-Dilly Dahlia II- all four $10,000-27 1/2x43

Meet Nashville Artist, Wendy Leonard!

Friday, May 4th
4:00 pm at Art on the Green

Wendy Leonard

Flower lovers!!!!! Wendy Leonard ‘s “Unlatch the Garden Gate” is a collection of garden paintings that will be the highlight of a new show opening this Friday, May 4, 4-6pm, at Art on the Green, in Conway, Arkansas.

Wendy was inspired by visiting two gardens, each of which she painted in different methods.

Dahlias in Butchart Gardens, near Victoria, BC, Canada are the subject of large works; exuberant, vibrant, traditional transparent watercolors.

Villa Gamberaia gardens outside Florence, Italy, are depicted in watercolor monoprints, embellished with collage elements of lace and papers, as well as watercolor painting. These are presented in antique frames which she restored and painted white.

Wendy invites you to this open reception, “I hope you enjoy the viewing as much as I enjoyed the painting of them.”
