"Echo Park"

9 x 12
oil on masonite

This is the most beautiful triangular shaped park right in the middle of the city of Highland Park in Dallas. If you haven't seen the azaleas here in the Spring, it's a must-see! Our family calls it Echo Park because our children used to play in the gazebo and when you stand in the middle, you can hear your echo. Several years ago, our son proposed to his wife in the gazebo, and months later, she had her wedding portrait made here. For their first anniversary, I gave them a similar painting to this one.


  1. Ann, this is lovely, and the sweet memories make it all the more so!

  2. Hi
    It is a beautiful painting. Great memories. Keep up the good work.

  3. Hi Ann, thanks for your comments on my site. I've toured yours and enjoyed it. I like your style, and yes, I think you have a nice soft and loose style. That was my first thought, so you are accomplishing that. Love the colors in this one.

  4. What a romantic spot! They're lucky to have a similar painting to commemorate such a special place and time. those azaleas are amazing, and I like the calligraphic marks in the gazebo.
