Chambers Bay Walk--Original Oil Painting

This little 5x7 inch oil painting was inspired by a place I often walk near the Chambers Bay Golf Course in University Place, Washington. There is a series of trails that meander above, around, and through the golf course. The Soundview Trail, Grandview Trail, and 64th Street trail are interconnected and are a delight to traverse. This painting develped from a foggy morning tour beginning at the 64th Street Trail. The Pierce County Environmental Services Building hosts a line of trees whose trunks stood out dark and proud in the coolness of the foggy morning on which I visited. When it is dry, I will list this painting for sale in my Etsy Gallery with my other small tree paintings.

The light and darks together in this really make it work Nancy. Beautiful!

Light and dark is what impressed me when I decided to paint this scene. I'm glad my creation reflects my intentions. Thanks!
