Plum Island Marshes - 6 x 6 inches - Oil on canvas - SOLD

I think marshes are very beautiful. I love the way the water winds its way around the tall mounds of grasses to create meandering pathways. For this painting, I covered the canvas with a layer of yellow. You can see the yellow shining through at various points....especially noticeable in the sky area. This painting is based on a photo I took of Plum Island in the fall.

Love this Laurie! I haven't painted outside yet - I really need to try especially with my new box. I'm going to Maine next week so I'm going to bring my box with me.

I really like this one a lot. You captured the distance really well. You are so productive - are you doing a painting every day?

Hi Meg,

I'm not quite a daily painter...more like a "2 - 3 times a week painter." That pesky job just keeps getting in the way!
