Weekly sketch 3-2-18, Cheekwood

Cheekwood Botanical Garden, Friday 3-2-18, 1-2:30 pm. 56 degrees and sunny.

A brave day, I drove here by myself.  I didn’t let the monsters in my head win.  This is part of why I bought a membership here – to encourage me to go sketch.

This is the “Ruins” section – there are fragments of the original columns from the Tennessee Capital building, which was finished in 1854.  The limestone columns didn’t endure the weather and started to decay.  They were salvaged and brought here, to create a sort of small amphitheater.

(My scanner make the colors unusually bright and vivid)
