"The Edge of the Marsh" 8x8 oil Plein Air 2:30 to 5:00 4/1/11


This is a painting from a wetlands area near where I live that I paint year round. I initially started another painting that encompassed a larger area, but found myself continually looking at the water's edge. The reflective and translucent qualities of the water captured my interest. I will glaze the water later in my studio to add a little more reflectivity.

Wow Micheal,This is a perfect painting,I really love your work!!
you paint with romatic colors and softness.
I'm an Artist my self, but I have never painted outdoors in the daylight before....and through your art I can dream about how it feels to do that, through your Art I can feel the sun on the leafs, and dance on the water.
Thank You.
