Early Spring, Nisqually

3/27/10 "Early Spring, Nisqually", 10" x 8", Oil
Because of a back problem, my trip to the Nisqually Wildlife Refuge today for a Plein Air Washington paintout was short lived. But the colors were beautiful there, very pale, and I wanted to try doing a painting from memory back in my studio.  So this is a studio painting with hopefully a plein air flavor.  I was trying to capture the feeling of the place, not any exact location.  I think painting from memory is an excellent exercise and has all sorts of possibilities for interesting experiments.
