As I sat in our beautiful Rose Garden park here in Eugene on a sunny spring afternoon, watching the shadows of the trees move across the lawn, I painted this plein air oil painting. I tried to capture the variations of light and shadow in the leaves, and in the pink petals of the dogwood. I knew that my usual cadmium red was not going to capture the delicate pinks of the blooms, so I had added alizarin crimson, pure magenta, and permanent rose to my palette to capture the variations of the light-play on those petals. Spending an afternoon taking in such a beautiful setting fills my brain with happy endorphins and makes my day glow.
