It was a crisp...no cold... Autumn day when I visited this scene. I love the wide open views of the marsh and I love painting them larger than I usually paint. This one is 12x24 and I wish it translated better on the screen but the photo doesn't do justice to the scale of the painting. One of my workshops this Fall will be about painting the marsh so I will be doing more in the coming weeks in preparation for the workshop. I will be posting my workshop schedule for this Fall sometime this week so look for it if you think you might be interested in coming to a workshop!
