Tomorrow I’ll be among a group of artists painting during the Eola Heights Historic Garden tour.  The sixth bi-annual tour of gardens at historic homes in downtown Orlando is designed to inspire visitors with urban gardening ideas as well as showcase local artists’ creative response to the landscape.  Several of us have painted at some of the venues prior to the event.  This is a painting done at one of the houses with a large collection of statuary and gargoyles.
