The fourth plein air painting from the Rienzi Gardens series has been completed. For this painting, I setup my easel in the "White Garden" section of the Rienzi Gardens. I was intrigued by the brilliant afternoon light as it casts sparkling spots and mottled shadows on the plants and walkway, creating a symphony of light and shadow. I wanted to capture this magical light and, if only for a moment, have the viewer escape and join me in this brief moment of tranquility.
