This is a painting of my daughter sleeping in the dappled light cast by a mimosa tree in the back yard of our home of 23 years. I did a series of studies of her under this tree, and am so glad I did. Mimosa trees are very rare in Seattle, and this one was the largest one I've ever seen. I loved this tree and was heartbroken when it fell down the night before we moved to a new house. I plan to do a series of finished paintings from the studies, stay tuned!
