Charlotte - Art in the Garden Tour - April 2013

On Saturday April 19 and 20 of 2013 I participated in the Charlotte Garden Club's Garden Tour.  Most recently they have been a calling it "Art in the Garden Tour."  This is I think my third year for coordinating the artists.  This year we selected 12 artists painting in 6 gardens.

This year I was at Chipping Campden in Charlotte which is on Vernon Dr.  They are English style townhomes with the look of Cotswold of England.  

Here is a picture of the real Chipping Campden in England
Wikipedia says: Chipping Campden is a small market town within the Cotswold district of Gloucestershire, England. It is notable for its elegant terraced High Street, dating from the 14th century to the 17th century. ("Chipping" is from Old English cēping, "a market, a market-place"; the same element is found in other towns such as Chipping Norton, Chipping Sodbury and Chipping (now High) Wycombe 

This was my view in which I completed my 1st painting in the late afternoon on Tuesday after painting with the Plein Air Buds on the Catawba River.
