Coastal Marsh

8x8, oil on canvas panel, 85.00,

Kathy Collins named this painting for me!  We were actually at Squirrel Park in Matthews, NC with out Tuesday Plein Air group.  Squirrel Park has a little pond with trees in the back and hanging over the sides.  I set up and started painting, the sun moved, and I was no longer in the shade.  (Painting with the sun on your canvas makes for a "loser" painting every time.)  I moved to the shade and then had to make up the painting.  The colors and shapes changed some and Kathy thought it looked coastal, so we just relocated the location of the painting!  Moral of this little story:Paintings have a life of their own!
