Upper Garden Painting by Simon Bull
Simon Bull is well-known for his use of radiant colors in landscapes, still life and abstracts as well as his entertaining painting demonstrations. In July 2019, guests at Mount Vernon were able to watch him hard at work creating unique artwork such as this painting. Over the course of three days, he gained inspiration from various locations on the Estate. This painting of a poppy was inspired by the poppies found in the upper garden which bloom in late spring to early summer at Mount Vernon.
The Upper Garden Painting is on a 30” x 30” canvas.
This original, one-of-kind artwork was painted exclusively for Mount Vernon during Simon Bull’s Plein Air Art Event July 2019.Mount Vernon had the opportunity to interview the internationally renowned artist, Simon Bull, in the Upper Garden.
