The Pacific Northwest is known for fog shrouded trees, rain veiled views and dream-tinted skies. But in a simple farm field of calendulas destined for market, it was not softness but the majesty of tall trees and the strength of bold rows on a bright August afternoon that needed to be painted.
This 4 x 6 inch painting is another miniature. It was painted with some artistic license from a photo taken by artist and friend Karen. I call it simply 'Calendulas'. (March 21 Update: It won 'Best in Show and SOLD at the miniature show and competion at the Gallery North in Edmonds, Washington.)
