I’m participating in an art show at Historic London Town and Gardens, Edgewater, Maryland, a beautiful county park with reconstructed colonial buildings and eight acres of native and exotic plants.  One of the benefits of being here this weekend is that the fall-blooming camellias are at their peak.  At the far reaches of the garden path, overlooking the South River, I saw scores of bushes filled with blooms: reds, whites, and pinks.

I painted for about an hour before coming back inside to warm up and make some final adjustments.
