Independence Day Watercolor

Frelinghuysens' Colonial Revival Mansion
watercolor and dark grey LePen
4" x 6"

A watercolor of a small section from the Frelinghuysens' Colonial Revival Mansion located at the Frelinghuysen Arboretum in Morristown, NJ. Also known as, "New Jersey's premier public garden. The 127 acre tract is well known for its many beautiful gardens and is a center for horticultural education." It is such a serene place to visit! I wish I could've spent all day there and drawn the wonderful colonial architecture of the entire mansion.
