#NH #Garden #Flowers Mid #Summer #Gallery

Mid summer, here in New Hampshire, is when the garden has some of the best displays.

We’ve continued to have large afternoon down pours this year, much like the south, which has helped with the watering schedule tremendously. I hope you enjoy the gallery!

Padrick Bentley-Beautiful, Jarring Glitch Art

The other day I was surfing online and I came across the artist Padrick Bentley. I was looking through his more traditional contemporary paintings, if you can call them traditional at all, and loved his bold use of color and vivid movement and texture in his pieces. Then I came across his”glitch art” and was even more impressed. Take a look!
