Rhodies Take the Stage

Done in June 2005 at the Rhododendron area of Highland Park. The sky was so clear and such an intense shade of blue, that it cast a blueish tint over everything. It was also very hot. I was in full sun and came home sunburned in all the areas I missed with the sunscreen. The vantage point I was at was on the side of a hill, so I kept sliding out of my chair. I was also severely dehydrated because I'd forgetten to bring my water bottle. When I saw how beautiful the finished painting was though, I decided it was worth all of the difficulties of the process.

This painting was purchased by the wife of a dear friend.

Aunt Colette,
I love this one... Thank you so much for the print you gave me! The colors look especially great against the blue mat.
