This was painted on a very drizzly summer morning at the Pat Mears garden in Medina's Spring Grove Cemetery. Fortunately I remembered to bring my umbrella (attached to the leg of my easel tripod), especially since oil and water don't mix.

My grandmother lived in central Pennsylvania across from Union Cemetery, an old -est. 1795- historic cemetery where, as a child, countless hours were spent wandering down paths, fascinated by the epitaphs of the dearly departed.
"Marble Orchard" was painted during a peaceful albeit steamy August morning in Medina's Spring Grove Cemetery. A dense canopy of a sprawling oak provided welcome shade.
