Comments: This print is based on a view with which I am very familiar. I have spent countless rainy spring Saturday mornings at my children's soccer games and can't help but stare past the fields and activity to the tree line that lies beyond and the leaves just beginning to come on, with shades of chartreuse mixed with the reds of the leafless branches. The print was made with four reductions and about six impressions to achieve some gradient in the foreground and sky.
