Creek Flight, 8 x 16, oil on panel, L. Daniel © 2014
On a recent trip to the Georgia coast, I was able to get onto an old plantation to paint. The morning was clear, and the marsh was full at high tide. It was very quiet except for occasional appearances of local birds stopping off for breakfast. When one of the egrets flew low through the reeds, I quickly (and gratefully) added him into the scene. I love the hint of life and movement.
