I painted this commission for a person I see regularly as she walks her dog in my neighbourhood. They often walk through Summit Park, not far from where I live. It’s a special place for me too, situated in Garry Oak meadow at the top of a rocky hill. For this painting, I looked back to some of my roots. The one this collector had seen that caught her eye was one I painted of Summit Park, 4 years ago. My style has evolved since then, but I enjoyed looking back at that painting and employing some of the shorter, impressionist brush strokes that I used then. I tried to capture the sense of motion in the grass and trees that were otherwise still in the wet dew, at daybreak, on this May morning.
