Plein Air - Rhodies at Washington Park

Mid-may - Done en plein air at Washington Park in Portland.Allan and I visited Washington Park on a sunny Saturday afternoon in May. It was beautiful. He painted the Portland skyline while I chose to paint a small clump of salmon and yellow colored rhododendron with the dense foliage beyond. It took me about one hour, 50 minutes. The paint is thin in some spots, thick in others. I like the greens.
It is 9 x 12, done on a linen covered wooden panel.
This painting was sold at the 62nd Annual Fundraising Auction for the Portland Chamber Orchestra held in March 2009.
