SALT MARSH SOLD


The salt marshes are all around us and are a continual changing enviornment. I find them fascinatingly beautiful. This was painted from a photograph that my husband took while kyaking in early spring. The grasses are an intense yellow green at this time of the year. I have only painted a few landscapes and feel that the only way to learn is by jumping in and swimming with the current!

I'm in agreement about marshes; I love how they're constantly reshaping themselves. Great use of loose brushstrokes!

Linda, love your landscapes! Stunning, and so abstract! I also was interested in reading that you live in Beaufort, S.C. I love your charming town. We visited several years ago, and loved it! I am envious!

Seeing that you have only painted a few landscapes Linda, you have done a brilliant Job with this one. It is exactly how I like to see a Landscape painted. Brilliant colours too. All the best Linda.

P.S. Linda is there any particular reason why you don`t answer these comments? forgive me if you can`t.

Thank you all for your wonderful comments. I feel like a fish out of water doing landscapes but in time perhaps I'll get better. Thanks so much!!
