This painting recently found it’s home in Olympia, Washington. I painted this scene ‘en plein air’ (on site) down the Swan Highway near Condon. It was a inclement spring day and the weather alternated between cold and cloudy and cold and sunny. During a break in the clouds, a beam of light illuminated the meadow behind the line of willow bushes. That was my inspiration for this scene. I added a few finishing touches in my studio.
