I was prompted to paint this by the simple, quiet elegance of the shapes and the harmony of the colors: The muted greens and golds in the grass, the elegant gray-blue treelike, the pale rose in the sky. My teacher drummed it into our heads to keep the big shapes simple and uncluttered, so that was also foremost in my mind. Just a great spot to paint.
