George’s Garden Shed

This is one of the garden sheds at George Washington’s Mount Vernon. I took the photo several years ago when I was spending time with my brother and his family in Virginia. Bro and I spent the whole day at Mount Vernon, even having lunch. It was a day to remember.

I told Mr. Beloved that I was still trying to loosen up and he said, “Well, that is definitely loose!” LOL! Oils on 8×10 stretched canvas with a small flat brush.

The photo, below, is actually Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello, not Mount Vernon’s garden. But, they were contemporaries and fellow gardeners, so, enjoy.

“…impress it on the gardener to have everything in his garden that will be necessary in the housekeeping way — as vegetable is the best part of our living in the country.” — Martha Washington
