So calm and peaceful in the marsh. The tide is high and the water is very still. Light, color and texture woven together in horizontal bands creating a tranquil stillness. This is a perfect spot for quiet reflection and relaxation. It was hot when I painted this, a reminder that we are now in the lazy dog days of August when time seems to move slowly in the heat but darkness comes more quickly than before, a reminder that autumn is on its way.
