History of a Painting - Wellfield Gardens, Elkhart, INFrom the English Cottage Garden Acrylic painting by Larry Johnston©Wellfield Gardens is such a great place to visit and every year we see that they have added more trails and opened up more areas to see.  After my first visit to Wellfield, I made it a point to include it among my paintings of Elkhart.  The English Cottage is the backdrop for many Wedding photos.The painting was done in 2014, which I still have.  I painted it as a moonlit night after a rain, since I am now doing evening scenes and reflections in the rain.  I have since expanded my Elkhart related paintings. I will be showcasing them in later blogs.See my Blog on Wellfield Gardens at www.wellfieldgardens.org  Check out some of my other Paintings and stories behind them...
