Sunlight which is filtered through a canopy of trees reaches the ground in patches of various colors, depending on what happens with reflections and highlights and shadows.
Objects which are struck by this dappled light appear to lose their solid form due to these mottled highlights and shadows. The whole scene becomes a floating mass of light and color.
I tried to anchor this painting with the color of the fireweed blossoms, but I believe it is the mobile textures of branches and stems, leaves and foliage that have won out.
Makes for a lively painting, though!
