This was painted as part of a plein air (painting outside in the light of day) event called "Paint St. Louis." All the participating artists had two hours to set up and paint their location scene. I set up in Forest Park not far from the art museum - it was a cold fall day but a "warm" experience as I was surrounded by 70 other artists. It's always a challenge to paint quickly and capture the scene - every time I see this painting, I remember what a beautiful day it was and how much fun it is to paint with other artists.
