Twilight in the Garden

Check out this great place! Amanda just finished this oil painting for tonight's fund raising Gala at Bartram's Garden. The Bartram's Garden was named after John Bartram, America's first botanist. He was endlessly curious about the natural world.  He wanted to learn everything about the world around him and truly believed that all living things were beautiful in their own right. His explorations of wild American landscapes were deeply influential to Europeans who were hungry for any and all information about the New World.
