Early Morn on the Marsh

As a final step for the exhibition, I went through some of my boxes of paintings and came across this one. It's a small painting but against the frame of plum (a bit more pink than shows here), I really loved the mood of it. I remember painting it, and hunted through my flickr uploads thinking I had posted it and could find the name I had given it. After 90 minutes, I gave up -- and could find it - surprised that I never posted the painting. So I named it last night after it was matted ... funny. The view is familiar to me and one I often paint - it's inspired by the many ponds and lakes we have in my area and those wild grasses that seem to catch my fancy.

My son and his new bride came to dinner last night, so good to catch up!

I'm mighty tired today after such an intense weekend...it'll be a while regaining my momentum ....

Have a terrific week!

Lin,

I really love this one and the plum mat really sets it off.

Can't wait to see what you upload next.

Sure wish you lived close to me. I'd love to have a paint day with you. I think I could learn a lot. I love your style,

xoxo

Oh Lin this is so striking -- love love love the colors -- such a "mood" piece -- gorgeous. And yes the plum mat really sets it off. So glad you found this treasure!!!

Have a good week; hope it's not too hot or hectic.
Big hugs,
