Summer in the back yard of Radius Studio

This was the painting that started my current painting binge.
It was completed during a summer class at Radius Studio in Portland Oregon.
My teacher was artist Jolyn Fry.  I was lucky to get her all to myself.
The painting was done in person behind the beat up studio and is a view out of the sunken
back yard.
I struggled through this painting for four or five sessions, painting in wind and a little rain.  The time of day was late afternoon.
I eventually said adios to my instructor and took the thing home and finished it in my basement studio.
I built a frame (it took three tries) and hung the son of a bitch on the wall.
