"A simple sunbeam cast upon a tree trunk creates the focus on this meditative painting. Closer examination of this painting reveals all the colors layered upon each other – peach, turquoise, purple, warm and cool greens, even magenta – which from a distance meld to create lively neutrals. I have always admired the Monet painting 'Morning on the Seine Near Giverny' for its neutrals created by using bold colors of the same value layered upon each other, and it influenced my work on this piece."
