This was painted in my friend's back yard which was a riot of new greens and flowers.  I usually run the other way when confronted with this much green to paint but since the weather said probable rain we decided to stay. It was beautiful to look at but a real challenge to paint.   I had to look very closely at the subtle color modulations and be careful not to generalize.  The size is 12 x 9 inches oil on canvas panel.
