Pastel on UArt, 12x12
I did this painting to express the sense of stillness and calm that surrounds the slow moving stream as it enters the salt marsh. On the banks of the stream at the edge of the deep oak forest, the palm trees grow tall and straight. It is as if these palms guard the entrance to the higher ground, and in the heat of the day, they appear to stand all that much taller. As the clouds begin to form in the early afternoon, they diffuse the light and cast passing shadows over the marsh.
