Artist Irina Sztukowski paints Watercolor Painting of San Francisco Conservatory Of Flowers in Golden Gate Park


This week my dreams came true. I always thought about coming to paint Conservatory Of Flowers in Golden Gate Park of San Francisco en Plein-Air Style. And finally, I packed my paints and went. In spite of the starting rain, I stoically waited for the first sun rays to come up while I was drawing And then, the magic had began: I splashed the paint all over the artwork. But the day was still oh so cold. I warmed up my hands in the restaurant at the Ocean Beach and then happy and full, filled with art ideas, I went back home to add a few details to the painting :)

A note from the keepers of this beautiful Botanical Life Museum:

The Conservatory of Flowers is a national, state and local landmark, officially “Landmark Number 841” in the State of California. Built in 1879, the Conservatory of Flowers was the first formal structure erected in Golden Gate Park and remains an icon at the entrance of world renowned Golden Gate Park.

The Conservatory is literally filled to the brim with flowers, foliage and plants from around the world, with a concentration on tropical plants. It’s a place where you will always be greeted with a warm smile, an unforgettable experience, and an opportunity to view a plant or flower that you may not see anywhere else. Come visit the Conservatory today and immerse yourself in our five distinct galleries, each focusing on highlighting a different ecosystem, ranging from a tropical rainforest to the cloud forests perched on top of mountains. Once inside the Conservatory you will engage all senses: see an awesome array of colors and textures; feel the warm, moist air; smell intoxicating fragrances; taste the mist on your tongue; hear the trickle of falling water, a clap of thunder in our rainforest, or crickets as the sun starts to set.

We are proud that the Conservatory is engaged in important conservation and education work, keeping rare and unusual plants on display for the young and old, just as we have done since 1879. We are proud to translate the amazing stories of plants unique features or ingenious adaptation traits through our carefully curated interpretation and experiences. Finally, we are proud to welcome children of all ages and socioeconomic backgrounds throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.
