Description:
Aiken's paintings are usually landscape scenes painted en plein air (French for "in the open air"), which is traditionally a characteristic of Impressionist works of art that refers to the act of painting outdoors. This work captures the essence of the style by focusing on the natural light and the artist's own perception of nature as the spring season arrives.
