I love Rip Van Winkle Gardens! Every time I visit I have such a wonderful and relaxing experience. The grounds are so beautifully maintained and everyone is always so friendly. We had a great time that day painting and visiting. We had lunch at the little cafe on the grounds looking out onto the lake...beautiful!
The 2 paintings below were done while plein air painting with a friend, (Denise Broussard), during our last excursion to Rip Van Winkle Gardens in Jefferson Island, Louisiana .
