I took a photo in my garden every day I was home last year. One evening, on the way back in to the house the light was hitting a changing maple and some small overturned flowerpots. This is a combination of drawing from life and painting from those photos. Being that it’s in my backyard it was easy to run out and draw, but that flash of evening light only lasted long enough to lift my ipad and snap, so I relied on those photos for the color.
I started painting this last week because i was just so weary of this colorless weather we have been having. It is nearly enough finished to set aside for a few days.
