This started out as a rainy day painting as the view from my living room. Then when I was almost done, the sun came out so I added all the shadows and Voila! A sunny day painting!
I had really wanted to paint the masses of snow-in-summer flowers that are in full bloom right now. They are very tricky to paint because they are white and they do just look like masses of white snow sometimes.

I feel like a need to do many more snow-in-summer paintings to get it right and do them justice.
