This was painted at Marian Bear Park, just off highway 52. It was early morning and the sun was intensely bright, I mean really bright. The light was bathed over the scene from behind, the sun directly in front of me, thus creating a back light effect. I really enjoy painting palm trees, especially the ones that have dead fronds hanging from them. So many interesting colors in those dead fronds. The little hut on the hill adds a bit more interest.
