Olmsted associated park: Audubon Park, New Orleans

Painting in the south in the spring means being inspired by local color and the prolific azalea is one of the first and most showy of southern shrubs. The enjoyment and peace one receives from nature was foremost in mind when Frederick Law Olmsted said, "The enjoyment of scenery employs the mind without fatigue and yet exercises it; tranquilizes it and yet enlivens it; and thus, through the influence of the mind over the body gives the effect of refreshing rest and reinvigoration to the whole system."
