Huntington Gardens Botanical Drawing

The Huntington
Founded in 1919 in Pasadena, California.
The gardens cover 120 acres including Rose Gardens, Japanese Gardens, Chinese Gardens plus a dozen other specialty gardens.

Botanical Drawing workshop with art instructor Lisa Pompelli.

Always so much going on at The Huntington, even in December

Diana launches her arrow ... seemingly into the dome of the gallery outside the Huntington Library. There's a legend that sculptor Anna Hyatt Huntington used an 18-year-old Bette Davis as the model.
