I painted this from a photo I took on Nantucket this past summer. This restaurant had the most beautiful sidewalk garden with big white hanging lanterns that caught the attention of my camera. I sat down to paint this knowing it was going to be a hard read if you hadn't seen the picture, but it was so full of crazy colors and textures I wanted to give it a shot with my knife.

Honestly, Ann, I knew these were Chinese lanterns right away. I love the cheerful feel to this piece, the mullioned windows in the background and the beautiful flowers in the garden. I rather wish I was eating out there myself. I've always wanted to visit Nantucket...maybe some day.
