Laguna Beach, California 2014/15 - Gianne de Genevraye

Laguna Beach, California's secret garden

This garden was donated to the city of Laguna Beach in 1972 by Hortense Miller who passed away in 2008. The property is intact with her intended garden, situated at the top of a tall hill that sprawls to the ocean.  Her mid-century modern house is part of the public tour of the garden, by appointment only through the city.  I am there alone, in her world, as she created it.  I will be painting in the winter months of January and February 2014, and then will return in March of 2015 to paint the rest of the paintings in the springtime.  The exhibition will be sometime in sping 2015, along with receptions, open house, and a conference lecture on my artist process.
