Painted on location during Easton Plein Air in Easton.

This peaceful backyard view is from the house I was staying at in Easton. The yard faces an inlet of water and the dock you see in the distance belongs to the neighbors. The woman who owns the property has a wonderful yard for painting with lots of paddle boats, terracotta pots, a few chairs, a potting shed and other elements that make for interesting subjects. The big challenge here was making sense of all the greens in her yard. I found that the pops of orange and red help to break up the overwhelming green in the scene.
