"Mountlake Cut" oil landscape from the Arboretum series

Just before we went to Hawaii I spent the day walking all through the Arboretum by the University of Washington. It was a cool, overcast, Northwest day and I took lots of images to work from. Well,....it looks like I'm going to do a series of paintings from those photos. I have completed three so far. This is the first one ...of the Mountlake Cut , where they have the rowing competition in the summer.

Love the grey water and sky against hose fall tree color, and lots of beautiful soft edges.

Late to the party, I am... but this is lovely. I really like the atmospheric softness as the view recedes into the doitance.
