Salt Marshes 7″ x 5″

A few years ago my husband and I took a day trip to Cape Cod. I took many photos of the salt marshes, which are so beautiful. The photo reference for this painting was taken at Gray’s Beach in Yarmouth, MA. I had a hard time deciding which photo to use as a reference and this one eventually won out. I love the simplicity.

    This sure caught my eye on the 30 in 30 page. I love the simplicity, too. I feel like it spurs my imagination.
