This is one of the paintings I did during our Mount Baker trip. I'm always tempted to paint shadows in bright purple. Most of the time it really does not work; this time is different, I think.
Gold Creek Pond is in a park on Snoqualmie Pass.It is a really pretty area, with an ADA accessible trail around the pond. Because the trail is accessible to wheelchair bound people, it also makes it a convenient spot to paint for an artist with a lot of gear. Just like cutouts in curbs, making things accessible to the disabled helps many other people as well.
