English Garden at Chicago Botanic Gardens

English Garden - Oil and oil pastel on paper, 22" X 30." This image has just been added to Chicago Scenes 2. It is based on the English Walled Garden at Chicago's Botanic Gardens.


  1. Ruth, this is so serene to me and so English --- the way I saw Florence Nightingale's garden at Romsey, England. But you have a touch reminiscent of Van Gough in there, too. And the openness on the horizon allows for the viewer to go where s/he might/must. . . Lauren

  2. Thank you for your wonderful comment. I love the way you see my work. I hope I get to see you the next time you are in Chicago.
