SWOPA at Glenwood Gardens

Cotswold Cottage
12" x 16", Oil on Canvas

Last Thursday the SWOPA group went to Glenwood Gardens, one of the Hamilton County Park System's parks. The original owners of the land were captivated by the Cotswolds region in England and set out to reproduce the setting here in Southwest Ohio. Their "cottage" is perched on the hill overlooking a valley of rolling fields and stands of large trees. I started painting early in the morning and fixed the scene with the long shadows being cast down the hill.
