This oil painting of the artist's backyard garden measures 40 inches by 30 inches unframed and 45 inches by 35 inches framed in a handmade cassetta style finished corner metal leafed frame. Connecticut Impressionist artist Leif Nilsson painted this canvas in his garden in the spring of 1998. The stone steps in the path lead the viewer past the potted geranium and behind the patch of blue bearded iris to the wrought iron table and chairs. The pink dogwood tree up on the terraced hill is in full bloom. Other plants in the garden are greenhouse grown foxgloves and perennial poppies. The frame was made by Leif Nilsson in his Chester Studio. Click on the thumbnail images above to view other detailed images of this painting. To see other garden paintings by the artist click here.
