About this painting

This painting was my second ever plein air painting, done in November 2015.  For this, I went to the Memorial Park at about 4:30 pm (when I knew the sun would be going down).  At that time, I made the mistake of going with short paints and the mosquitoes ate me alive when the light started to fade.  I returned to the exact location one week later, painted some more (with long pants this time).  The painting was eventually completed in the third week, always returning to the same location at the same time of day.  In this painting, it was all about the light on the environment.  The sun was blinding me and I wanted to bring that to the painting allowing the viewer to feel the way I felt when I was there.
