Becca's Magic Garden

I started this painting last December, and it took almost a year to evolve.  This is my dear friend Becca, who is an expert gardener and also an excellent painter.  The reference is an image she took of herself in her beautiful garden.  The plants in the background are based on plants from a medieval herbal.  I also got to use my gold paint.

When it is dry enough, I will send this to Becca.
