I guess I am in love with this view as I've painted it quite a few times.  This is the largest painting I've done of the scene--it's 24 x 30 and I'm quite happy with it.  This particular day was probably the most beautiful day ever.  The water in the original is more turquoise but somehow I can't get that color on my monitor.  The powers that be at the Montage Hotel have made it nearly impossible to go there to paint as the meters in the garage are 25 cents for every 10 minutes and there is a 3-hour time limit.  I'm so glad I got to paint there on location for quite a while before these changes took place.  It's the 3-hour limit that is impossible except I may just go there and paint only very small paintings--4 x 6 or 6 x 8.

I did this painting sometime ago but just realized I hadn't ever added it to my blog and since it is quite popular on Fine Art America I decided to add it.  The roses are called Henry Fonda, obviously named after that great actor.  I love their warmth and look forward to their appearance each spring.  The vase was given to me by a friend that knew how much I loved iris.  So nice of her!
