The artist made this when she lived across the street from Laurelhurst Park off 38th and Stark Street in Portland. She describes the image as a celebration of the beauty of the park but also a reminiscence of her childhood in Sublimity, Oregon and jumping rope at the grade school playground. The medium is oil pastel on a large sheet of black paper, donated by an architect friend.  The style may evoke Gustav Klimt as an influence, as well as the artist’s interest in particle theory.
