Meandering, 30 x 40
This painting is from last week - another large piece from my Georgia Low Country series. I just can't get enough of the waterways, marshes and dramatic skies!
I have been on the road (CT, NYC, and now painting on Long Island) and actually emailed this to myself so that I could send it out when I got the chance. However, I am using a different computer and the colors look different on this one (a little too intense). Hopefully what you get looks like the real thing. I guess there is no way to guarentee that all of us see the same thing... color will always vary from computer to computer due to differing monitor calibrations. Too bad there is not one universal setting!

Wow! Laurel, It's not just the sky that's dramatic. The whole painting is gorgeous and dramatic! I just love it, the colors, compostion, all of it! It's really beautiful!

The word "infinity" comes to mind when I view this painting. As if I could lay on the ground and enjoy these glorious clouds for hours.

I love the tranquility in this piece. As if the water, summer, and time are floating peacefully by. The colors are almost mystic. I clicked on the picture and looked at it on the white background and the colors really shone.I don't think the blog colors are working for this picture. I'm envious of your freedom to travel and paint, and look forward to new works.

Hi Laurel,

I know exactly what you mean. I had this experience in Nova Scotia. This is beautiful on my computer. Just incredible.

Any chance you can swing by Toronto?

Your series is really wonderful. So you're out and about and painting your way across the country, huh?
Very dramatic!!
