"Arboretum Sanctuary" Seattle Arboretum, plein air painting by Robin Weiss

"Arboretum Sanctuary"  Seattle Arboretum 20x10  oil on panel

I brought two of these 10x20 panels with me to paint at the Seattle Arboretum. The tall trees and shadowed paths were perfect for a tall skinny format.  I added the strollers using my phone which I kept handy while painting the main composition in case anyone walked down this path. I took a lot of photos but these two romantics seemed perfect for the scene.  See my previous post for how I composed the other 10x20.

I plan on saving these two paintings done at the Seattle Arboretum to inform larger studio paintings which I will enter in PAWA's end of the year exhibition at the American Art Co. in Tacoma, Wa .

Update: This painting is now available at the Michael Birawer Gallery in Seattle WA . If you are interested in purchasing call Summer at  206-624-7773
