Cloud Covered Marsh

Cloud Covered Marsh, 9 x 12, L. Daniel


St. Simons Island is a barrier island that is separated from the main land by rivers and salt marshes. These marshlands are a distinctive and evocative feature of the area - low horizontal stretches that ebb and flow with water from the tides. Large cloud banks have been rolling in each afternoon adding big drama in the sky. Love it!

Many thanks to the folks at dear ada blog for their kind mention of my small paintings!!! Check out the blog for colorful and joyous finds!!! Thanks y'all!

Every time I see one of your paintings, I get the feeling - yes, that's it; that's the look and feel that feels like home.
