Sea Passage Study

Sea Passage, 9 x 12, oil on panel, L. Daniel © 2014

One thing that fascinates me about marshes is their connection to the sea. The tide pushes ocean water into the marshland, and then the rivers push it back out to the sea. Consequently, the marshland and the beaches are always interacting and in a state of flux. This view from the marsh's edge includes the ocean in the distance as the tide is coming in.

Hi Laurel,

This painting makes me long for
Nova Scotia, where my school house is 3 acres inland from an ocean river
marsh. Super colour, light and mood.
