"May Shadows"

"The trees have been fully clothed in their soft green leaves.  Afternoon sunlight creates lengthening 'May shadows'."


ARTIST COMMENT
Whenever I have the opportunity to travel in this great Pacific Northwest, I take akong a sketch book and a digital camera.  So often there will be occasion to stop and photograph some romantic, or interesting scene.  Sometimes a single tree will stand out.  As in this painting, a moment of resplendent beauty touched my soul.  A May afternoon, with rapidly dispersing clouds dominated the pastoral locale.  I chose a sheet of neutral light gray Canson Mi-Tientes to moderate all the bright green leaves and colorful clouds.  I employed a zig-zag rhythm of white flowers in the foreground  to lead the eye to the break in the hedgerow which gains access to the towering, magnificent tree.
