Gardens & Parks, Gillette Park by Joan Tavolott

There is a small park in Sayville with a gazebo in the center. I thought it would be a fun sketch.
Later in the season there are usually flowering plants, but it is not warm enough yet for them to survive here on Long Island. This is Gillette Park.

  5. This is a wonderful sketching. It invites to stop and take time to observe the nature.
    The lines and colors seem so slightly :-)

  7. Pretty gazebo! I always wanted one when we had a large piece of land. No room for one, now. Don't they make you want to step inside?

    1. They are always fun to sit in and just relax. This one didn't have any benches. I guess you have to bring your own chair.

  9. A beautiful scene painted in watercolor. There was a gazebo in the town square in the little town that I grew up in. I loved to play in it. Thanks for sharing.
