This is another view from the Bear Creek Park bike path. I try to walk everyday and more often than not I walk around this park. It has miles of trails and is so convenient, right out the door.

I'm trying to make sure that all my landscapes have a pattern of light, color, or shapes to draw the viewer's attention to a focal point, and to make the viewer's eye dance and move around the piece. In this painting the focal point was the unbelievable bright light on the chamisas (it's a little whiter here than in the painting) at the top of the meadow. I used color patterns to move you up to that point.

It's wonderful! ANother thing that brings my eye back is the color of the distant mountain...although it's back there, it's blue is like a magnet for me.

Oh, Pam, is this ever nice to look at and I love the close up to see the "vangogh" like brushwork!! Just beautiful...the jewel tones are wonderful.

Thanks Karen, the mountains here are constantly changing colors.

Cathyann, as you got a peek of, the fall colors here are jewel tones!

Thanks Celeste, so appreciate your input.

Pam, I love the white bringing your eye through the painting. Really a nice sense of movement.
Just beautiful!
