Bench




8"X5" Pen, pencil & wash on paper



I spent a few minutes in my father-in-law's beautiful garden at lunchtime. It is a lovely spot and has been featured in a number of publications including Canadian Gardening. My sons have been doing some heavy work for him as he is now in his ninth decade, but he and his late wife pretty much created it themselves after he retired from a remarkable academic career.

This sweet little bench looks like a lovely place to enjoy the peace and quiet but I don't think that anyone has been able to sit on it for a while as the surrounding hydrangeas have almost taken over.
